Tarporley Silver Band  Founded 1875

New Members

Recruitment and Band Supporters

We are always looking for new players, sponsors and funds to keep this established band going. 

We need events to play and memebrs to contribute time and skills.  The band has a number of vacancies across the sections, but especially in cornet, baritone, and bass.  If you wish to play with us or support us in any way, please make contact and we will be happy to see how you can help keep the band going into the future. 

Without help, this band will run out of funds and members, and it is the kind support of locals and members that have kept it going for so long. 


New younger members are needed to train up to level required to play and organise music and events.  We have a great collection of music and our own band room.  There are no fees to pay, just your wish to play music or contribute to a worthwhile organisation. 

Please make time to visit us and try us out, you are welcome any Sunday afternoon between 2pm and 4:30pm or any event we are performing.

Vacancies, main band: You will need to either be able to play and read music to at least grade one level, but for full enjoyment of the music we play, above a grade 3 or above.  Having a formal qualification is not necessary, its a willingness to advance and improve that is most important.  You are encouraged to have your own instrument, but we have a range of instruments that can be loaned on request and after a trial period of guest membership.  There is no beginners band or training band at present, but we are seeking to form a training band if sufficient interest is received. We accommodate the various musical performance levels within what we do, and there will be something for everyone from beginner to soloist.

There are no fees to pay to join the band or staying a member, but equally there are no allowances for traveling to practices, events and performance, instrument hire or any other incidental costs.  Band instruments are insured, but you should insure your own instrument privately.  The band pays its expenses by private donation and performance donations.

Sorry, we do not have music for other wind instruments, e.g. flute, sax, clarinet, fife, oboe, bassoon.
