Welcome to the website of Stretford Band!
We are a community-based band with a long and proud history of playing quality music in and around Trafford.
We rehearse on Tuesdays and Thursdays 8.00pm – 10.00pm at Sevenways Methodist Church, Barton Road, Stretford, Manchester M32 9RD where we moved in February 2017 after many years at Sale Sports Club. We are delighted to be back in Stretford, and look forward to renewing links with the local community. If you would like to listen to the band in rehearsal or come and play with us, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We are very fortunate to have strong connections with other local bands, in particular Bolton Hoover Band and Sale Brass, with whom we have very friendly relations.
There is a list of our current engagements here, which is regularly updated. If you would like to talk to us regarding sponsorship or booking the band for a concert or other event, please contact our secretary.
Don’t forget to check our vacancies page! We are currently seeking a new MD (Dec 2017).
It’s always good to hear from former members of the band or to receive pictures or comments from people who have attended our concerts and performances. If you could like to contribute something to our gallery or news pages, please send it to Julia@stretfordband
We’ll look forward to seeing you soon.
