For over one hundred years, Toddington Town Band has been proud to bring music and pleasure to contented audiences across Bedfordshire and and beyond. We currently have more than thirty five active players of all ages and standards. Our extensive library of over 400 pieces of music means we are able to play a wide range of music of differing genres which offers enjoyment and challenges for the beginner and experienced musician alike.
Although the band has won many prizes and competitions over the years, it no longer contests but remains very active with many public performances such as formal concerts, bandstands and fetes throughout the year. As well as the full brass band, we often perform as a smaller ensemble suitable for the occasions when 30 or more players are just too many.
The band practices at Toddington Social Club on a Tuesday evening where warm welcome awaits from this friendly bunch of people.

As the seasons change ….
Toddington Town Band is preparing for its Autumn Concert - we promise a great selection of music, from marches to film music, with a few pieces featuring some of our sections … and of course our Development Band.
Please come and join us for the afternoon - we'll even offer you a cuppa and some cake!
Toddington Town Band will also be proud to take part in two special events over the coming months. The Band will be out in force to play at the Village Remembrance Service on Sunday 10th November 2019, and will also be supporting the Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box service at Woburn Parish Church on Sunday 17th November - the first outing in 2019 for Christmas Carols and our annual opportunity to compete with the organist!
For full details of the above events please see our "What's On" page.
Details about our Christmas programme will follow soon!
Fancy joining us?
If you play a brass instrument and would like to join a band, or are a bit rusty, or if you would like to learn how to play, come along and find out more!
