I have had lots of very positive comments on the event and of course on the tea!” Andrew Summers, Barnes Music Festival 2022
“The Band played superbly, both accompanying the carols and “in concert”, with some joyful and witty choices”. “The Barnes Concert Band always gives pleasure, especially at Christmas.” Jane Bennett-Powell, Barnes Community Association, Barnes Music Festival, St Michael’s and All Angels Church. 2019

“The Barnes Concert Band’s performances have been an essential part of the success of our Summer Garden Parties at Trumpeters’ , Richmond.

The sounds of the Band drifting across the Riverside and Green have definitely attracted more people to attend our Garden Parties.” Rose Barling, Museum of Richmond.
