About Alder Valley
Alder Valley Brass is one of the South East's finest brass bands, and provides music to enhance any occasion.
For more than 60 years Alder Valley Brass has performed at venues ranging from London's Royal Albert Hall, Windsor Castle, Epsom race course and Hampton Court Palace, to many of the UK's famous parks & bandstands. More recently, Alder Valley Brass were approached to provide a brass ensemble for the film ‘The Dig’ starring Carey Mulligan and Ralph Fiennes, which topped the viewing charts when it was released on Netflix.
Much of the band's concert work is in support of local charities and there have been proud moments working with Help for Heroes and the Royal British Legion, charities selected by the Mayor of Rushmoor at concerts, as well as The SSAFA and Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.

After recent contest success under MD David Hatton MMus FRSM ATCL, we are looking to strengthen our ranks, so have immediate vacancies for Cornets (front or back row, postion negotiable) and BBb bass.
We have a variety of Bandstand concerts being organised this year as well as summer events in which we shall take part. If you are interested please get in touch in the first instance with MD David Hatton our Musical Director.
