The Beckenham Concert Band was founded in 1977 by Ken Messenger. Over the years the band has continued to grow and now draws from a regular membership of over forty musicians.
The Band averages around eight concerts per year, many of these performances, both indoor and outdoor, are in aid of local charities. Venues such as the bandstands of the Royal Parks, Southwark Park and on the sea front at Eastbourne and Brighton have featured in our summer seasons.
The Beckenham Concert Band has also been invited to perform at corporate and national charitable events for organisations such as The Children’s Society, Great Ormond Street Hospital, RNLI, St Christophers’ Hospice, the London Open House Weekend and Sodexo.
