(The National Finals, Cheltenham, September 2014)
Thank you for visiting the website of Thundersley Brass Band. We are a competing Championship Section Brass Band based in South Benfleet, Essex. We perform at numerous concerts, contests, charitable events, private functions and civic events each year. We hope that you will take some time to browse through the attached pages of our website and discover some more about our band.
The band would like to thank you all for your support during the recent busy festive season with concerts and caroling. Both the Christmas Concert with guest choir from Earls Hall Primary School and the joint concert with Southend Girls Choir at the Palace Theatre were met with high praise from concert goers. Now, with the recent arrival of new players Andrew Marshall on Eb Bass, Jonathan Lockwood on Baritone, Stephanie Redgate on Cornet and Jerry Wilcock on Soprano Cornet, the band are eagerly looking forward to the upcoming area contest on Sunday 19th March in Stevenage to perform Herbert Howells classic showpiece for brass band 'Pageantry'.

It is with great sadness that...
we announce the recent passing of our band president Mr Bob Challis. Bob was the bands president for many years, a great supporter of the band both away from the band room and in attendance at our concerts. Our thoughts are with him and his family at this time.
