The people that make Blidworth Welfare Band are musicians with a real passion to come together and make music for the enjoyment of others and to compete at the highest level of brass banding.

Many of the band have been members for decades making a significant contribution over the years to the continued development of the band and the organisation as a whole.

The band rehearses every Monday and Thursday from 8pm until 10pm in their own rehearsal headquarters based in the village of Blidworth, Nottinghamshire and from time to time show vacancies for progressive and committed players looking to join one of the region's leading brass bands.
