Welcome to the website of Rushden Town Band.

It was an absolutely delight to play for the Armed Forces Day Drumhead Service at Rushden Goods Shed today (29th June). The sun shone, the Red Arrows flew over and the parade looked amazing as they marched up John Clarke Way. A lot of people stayed to watch and we are so glad that we could contributed to this amazing occasion in a small way.

What a lovely afternoon we had at St Mary the Virgin, Finedon on Sunday 23rd June and thank you to everyone who came. It was particularly special to be playing the piece that we commissioned in memory of our beloved late President, David Groom. Craig Stevens wrote a beautiful version of The Old Rugged Cross for the band, and it went down a treat. If you were unable to go, please head across to our facebook page where a recording can be heard of this version. We were delighted that Linda, David’s widow and some of his family were able to be there to hear the World Premiere of this piece.

We were delighted to be chosen as one of the group’s supported by Rushden Mayor for 2023-2024 Councillor Tracey Smith. The band would like to thank everyone who supported her in raising funds throughout the year.

Another event already in the planning stages is our second tour – this time to the Rhineland. If you or you know of any local companies who would like to sponsor the band, please ask them to get in touch with us.

The band will also be recording its first ever CD in October. This will be full of popular tunes including our very own piece composed by Craig Stevens in memory of our late President, The Old Rugged Cross.

Our beloved late President – David Groom.

We are a First Section brass band based in Rushden, Northamptonshire.
