Brampton Community Band: We meet on Thursday evenings 7.30-9.15pm
We play folk dance music from across Europe and beyond, on acoustic instruments, in a relaxed atmosphere at our weekly sessions. We hope to capture the easy-going nature of a pub session but with some structure, to allow all players to join in with confidence. No audition is necessary.
We are looking forward to being able to organise our own ceilidhs again soon and are available to hire for other events such as community barn dances, private parties and weddings. In the meantime, we have been having a lot of fun developing our repertoire of “listening” tunes.

Brampton Singers: is a community choir; we meet to have a good sing and enjoy a relaxed and sociable afternoon at St Thomas’ church centre, Chatsworth Road, on Wednesday afternoons, 1.30 – 3.00pm. We sing a variety of songs from different genres, some in unison but mostly in parts. The emphasis is definitely on singing for pleasure!
