EYNSFORD CONCERT BAND is a symphonic wind ensemble that has been based in the small Kentish village of Eynsford 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.

Amongst tough completion, we were proud to have been the first UK band to enter the European Championship for Wind Orchestras.
Both bands are extremely proud of the contribution that we have been able to make to SSAFA and the armed forces personnel and families that they support.
Eynsford Concert Band is proud and excited to have Mike Smith as its Musical Director. In April 2015 he was appointed Chief Instructor at the Royal Military School of Music where he is responsible for the training of Army Bandmasters and Musicians and we are thrilled that he has agreed to lead Eynsford Concert Band.
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.
2016 promises to be an exciting and busy year for Eynsford Concert Band. We very much hope that you will be able to enjoy it with us. Our concert schedule continues to evolve, so please check back regularly for further updates..
