Petworth Town Band have brought together people from around the Petworth Community to create a Remembrance Video, helping commemorate Remembrance as this year our parade and service is not happening as it usually would.
Our thanks to all involved, we hope we can be back together parading through Petworth as normal in 2021.
Established in the 19th Century, Petworth Town Band is one of West Sussex's few remaining traditional Town Bands
Our President, Lord Egremont, together with the National Trust, provides the Band with a room above Petworth House Stables, adjacent to Church Lodge, Petworth, West Sussex, where we practise every Monday evening.
The Band welcomes Brass, Woodwind and Percussion players of all ages and abilities. We have a popular and varied repertoire of traditional Brass Band music and marches, themes from film and television, old favourites and modern tunes.
Members come from all around but we are firmly rooted in the Petworth Community and are proud to lead the annual Remembrance Sunday parade and participate in other local events.
In addition to our two annual concerts, the proceeds from one of which is donated to a local charity, we also perform at fetes, Cowdray Gold Cup Polo, private parties and corporate events.
We are a friendly and inclusive group and organise occasional social events for players and helpers. In 2015 and 2017 we went on tour and hope to arrange further tours in future.
For many years now the Band has performed under the enthusiastic leadership of Bandmaster Martyn Streeter and Musical Director Paula Streeter, whose energy and spirit has undoubtedly kept the Band going from strength to strength .
Our President - Lord Egremont
Vice Presidents - Lady Joanna Mersey, Simon Knight, David Grimwood, Janet Duncton, Ron Green
