Ellesmere Port Concert Brass

Established  1870

 

Welcome and many thanks for visiting our web page!

 

We are a traditional brass band which strives to provide quality entertainment for the general public by playing concert music rather than entering contests.

 

Ellesmere Port Concert Brass (EPCB) is a registered charity raising funds from a number of sources. Fortunately we have received sponsorship over the years from several  local employers, for which we are extremely grateful. We ask for a small subscription from members, but payment for playing concerts is by far our biggest income generator.

 

In the main we play in the Wirral and Merseyside area with excursions into rural Cheshire.  We meet weekly on a Thursday evening for practice at Capenhurst village hall (Ellesmere Port)

Two Bands for the Price of One!

In June this year we combine forces with a band from Portsmouth.  The Royal British Legion Victory Brass Band are coming up to visit us, the picture on the left was taken during on their Netherlands tour, and we will be playing two concerts together.

The first is at Trinity Methodists Church, Whitby Road Ellesmere Porrt CH65 0AB on Saturday 29th June at 7.30.  Tickets are  £5 each, payable at the door.  This is the church where we launched our new name and you can see some images of that concert by following this link to our Concert at Trinity Methodist Church.

The second is on the following Sunday at the Boat Museum in Ellesmere Port.  (Just off junction 9 on the M53).  We shall be there from 11am to 12pm - an early performance as the Portsmouth Band have to head home in the afternoon.  We have played there on several occasions and you see some sample images at Boat Museum Concert
