What we do
The UK Paper Band is currently going from strength to strength, under the leadership of musical director Alison Foot. The band plays at many engagements across Kent, in a variety of venues, from bandstands on the coast, to churches around North Kent, at summer fetes, or at our "home" in the UK Paper Clubhouse. We also love to journey further afield. In 2009 we travelled to Llandudno in North Wales for the weekend and in 2011 we spent a weekend in Staffordshire playing at The Churnet Valley Railway.
In every concert, we play a balanced programme containing varied music to suit everyone's tastes. Our repertoire contains traditional marches, and selections from popular musicals, but it also contains popular songs and some more unusual pieces as well - we provide a programme to entertain everyone!
We always welcome new players. We are not a contesting band, but enjoy making music together and entertaining the public. If you play a brass instrument then we would love to hear from you! At the moment, we would particularly welcome new players who play horn, percussion or Bb Bass. We rehearse on a Wednesday evening at the UK Paper Leisure Club, Avenue of Remembrance, Sittingbourne, Kent, ME10 4DE from 7.30pm to around 9.30pm.

Come and join us
We always welcome new players!
We are not a contesting band, which means we emphasise having fun as well as making music.
If you play a brass instrument (cornet, tenor horn, euphonium, baritone, trombone, bass) or percussion, then we would love to hear from you! At the moment, we would particularly welcome new players who play percussion, tenor horn, euphonium, Eb or Bb bass, though many of our players in the large sections are flexible so that we can often accommodate extra cornets, horns, basses, or trombones.
