AFTER a long absence, Chichester City Band return to Midhurst tomorrow.

The band will be performing at the Grange Centre on.

The group consists of around 30 amateur musicians. It said it seeks to bring music to the community through concerts and other engagements.

This Saturday’s concert will be the very first in a series to take place around the district in order to raise the profile of the band in the area.

The band was first formed in 1897 and has played throughout the area since.

The concert will feature the full band, who will be conducted by the band’s musical director Ted Howard.

A whole range of music will be performed, including classics, marches, film themes and much more.

The range of the band’s repertoire means it is often able to choose from a broad range of musical genres to suit any occasion, and as well as concerts, also plays at fetes and weddings.

Their latest concert is set to start at 7.30pm on Saturday and tickets can be brought on the door for £8 per person, or £5 for concessions.

They can also be reserved in advance by emailing the band’s secretary at

In 2010 the band won the first section of the Southern Counties Amateur Band Association autumn contest and in 2011 finished fifth in the National Brass Band association London & Southern Counties regional contest.
