The band would especially like more brass players, but any musical instrument is welcome.

The Sillars Windband is a small, friendly group that meets on Tuesday evenings at the United Reform Church on Ipswich Road, Norwich.

Members give about four concerts each year at churches and residential homes.

No examination grades are necessary and there are no auditions.
