About the Band

Chichester City Band was formed in 1897 and has a long and proud history. Today, this award winning band of about 30 amateur members is bringing music to the community through concerts and other engagements.

Catch us in July…

Well that was a busy June, with two concerts (in the Alexandra Theatre, Bognor, and our regular summer Chichester Festival concert at St. Paul’s) and two very ‘floral’ events – Chichester Cathedral Festival of Flowers and our regular outing to the beautiful gardens at Stansted for the Garden Show.

But there’s no rest for a brass band in the summer season! Although we’ll be busy preparing for our very exciting trip to Cheltenham to take part in the Finals of the National Brass Band Championship of Great Britain, you’ll still have lots of opportunities to see us in July as we hit Chichester City Centre (Saturday 8th) and some of our favourite local fetes (Singleton, 21st and Sidlesham, 28th). We end the month with our annual participation in the RNLI Service of Thanksgiving (Selsey, Sunday 29th).

Check out all of our events on our Facebook page or our Diary of events page for full details.

Enjoy the sunshine!
