Making music fun in east anglia

It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Martlesham Brass has always held her in great esteem and we will miss her dedication and constant care for us.
We have followed her example of making our organisation open and welcoming to all.

We look to the future when we can celebrate her life and that of our new sovereign, King Charles III.

Martlesham Brass Publicity Report

Martlesham Brass have had a busy summer season including our own Summer Concert and Grand Draw, which raised over Ã�£700. We have enjoying playing at recent events such as Martlesham Music on the Green and the Service on the Green and at the BT Adastral Park Telecommunications Centenary celebrations as well as at a multitude of local summer fetes and garden parties. Our last summer engagements are in Westerfield and Chelmondiston on 15 July and then the band will take a well earned rest from public performance, before commencing a busy programme of birthday celebration events in September.

Martlesham Brass would like to say thank you for all the draw prizes that have been donated and the encouragement and support that has been received from local residents and organisations over the last few months.
