EYNSFORD CONCERT BAND is one of the UK’s leading symphonic wind ensembles, based in the small village of Eynsford, Kent since 1972.
Attracting players from all over the South East of England, the band retains a core of long-standing members and enjoys welcoming new and visiting players. The band tours overseas regularly, and aspires to attain the highest standards of musicianship within a social and friendly environment. The band is firmly rooted in its community and every year raises substantial amounts for local charities. Over the years, the band has grown in both size and reputation and prides itself on its eclectic, challenging and rewarding repertoire.
We rehearse each Tuesday between 7:45pm and 10:00pm at the Anthony Roper Primary School in Eynsford Village and conclude with drinks at the Chequers Pub in Farningham Village. We currently have a number of vacancies for Percussion, Tuba and French Horn players of a competent standard.

It was our great pleasure to perform with the Band of the Grenadier Guards on 5th November 2017 at Pamoja Hall and to help raise an incredible £8,000 in support of ABF – The Soldiers’ Charity in one very special evening.
After almost 4 years since leaving the Band of the Grenadiers Guards to take up staff appointments at the Royal Military School of Music, Mike has the honour of returning to the Grenadiers Band as their new Director of Music.
Amongst tough completion, we were proud to have been the first UK band to enter the European Championship for Wind Orchestras. See us in action here
It is hard to believe that from a handful of school children who gathered in Eynsford forty years ago under the guidance of our founder and inspiration Robin O’Connell, we are now here all these years later still making music.
