Who are Beckington Bandits?
We are a new, small community concert band set up in the village of Beckington, near Frome, Trowbridge, and Warminster. Under the umbrella of Wells City Band, we offer wannabe musicians of all ages and abilities, including beginners, to learn and develop their music skills on a range of brass and woodwind instruments, through affordable small group tuition. People with special needs and learning difficulties are all welcome, providing they are supported by a parent or a carer.
Entertaining the audience at the Massed Bands Concert at Wells Bandstand 2019
History was made on Saturday 16th December 2018, when Beckington Bandits performed for the first time at the Wells City Band Annual Christmas Concert. Some members of Beckington Bandits had never performed in a concert before, so it was especially pleasing to see how they rose to the challenge and performed their pieces brilliantly. There was even a cornet duet!
