About Us


Woodbridge Excelsior Band is a community brass band based in the town of Woodbridge, Suffolk.

We have a strong history and earliest records show that the band, in one form or another, has been in residence in Woodbridge since 1846.  We've previously been a temperance band and records show the only time the band stopped rehearsing was due to the World Wars.


Available for hire all year round, we play at a wide variety of functions ranging from concerts, beer festivals, weddings, fetes and private parties. During the Christmas season we are often to be seen playing carols in Woodbridge and Ipswich area. During the summer months we can often be found performing in local parks, on seafronts and in bandstands.


We have a long tradition of providing free concerts for the community at the Woodbridge Community Hall. These are non-ticket events and well attended by the local community.
