Chester Wind Band

We are a community wind band based on the outskirts of Chester, under the direction of Mr Neil Bardsley-Watson.

With a varied repertoire and a sensible number of engagements throughout the year, we offer a fun and enjoyable atmosphere to create music whilst striving to better ourselves as a band and as individual musicians.

You can often find the band performing at events such as the Eaton Hall Open Days and Harwarden Remembrance Service, as well as our own concerts in Ellesmere Port and Chester.

We are always looking to welcome new members of all abilities, so if you’re a musician in the area who would like to get involved, then we would love to hear from you.


We rehearse on Mondays (7pm – 9pm) during term time at Blacon High School with occasional rehearsals during school holidays.


The band is available for bookings and we can offer smaller ensembles if the main band is too large for your requirements.

If you would like to book the band or would like more information, please just get in touch!
