Welcome to Beenham Wind Orchestra

Hello and a warm welcome to our website!

We are a friendly amateur Wind Orchestra. We rehearse on Friday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.45pm at Beenham Primary School RG7 5NN.

We normally put on three or four local concerts each year, and often play at local fetes and events.

Beenham Wind Orchestra was formed in 1999 as part of the village’s millennium celebrations, with the help of a grant from the Parish Council. From very modest beginnings (there were six performers taking part in the first concert in Beenham Church), it has grown to its present size of around 40 members.
