Who are we?

Amersham Band is a brass band based in Buckinghamshire.

We are committed to high quality music-making by developing and nurturing local brass players. The band provides appreciation of music together with cultural and social development for its members and enriches the local community through concerts and a wide range of other community events. We have three bands with nearly 100 players and there is strong demand for further groups.

What are we building?

We have started  a project to build our own rehearsal facility in Amersham town centre  which will improve the accessibility of learning music throughout the local community, in particular to young people, senior citizens and people from disadvantaged back-grounds.. A suitable site has been identified, a lease is signed and planning permission has been granted for a new purpose-built community building.

When completed, the facility will also be made available for other local community groups such as choirs and local music ensembles. The project is a unique opportunity for Amersham to have a first-class music facility and cultural resource.

The benefit of installing renewable energy in our building

We want our new premises to be  environmentally friendly, harnessing renewable energy therefore we have included an Air Source Heat Pump and underfloor heating system in our new design. 

An Air Source Heat Pump draws in heat from the air outside and then transfers this heat to provide the heating needs by distributing it via underfloor heating


This will enable the running costs of our new rehearsal facility to be low and help the environment at the same time!
