About Us


The East London Community Band was formerly known as the Tower Hamlets Youth & Community Band and was set up in 1974 to serve the needs of wind instrument beginners as well as more accomplished players.

The Band is open to all. We cater for all ages from 6 years old to 80+ and have a wide range of activities to choose from at a very affordable rate. We also welcome families who want to participate in music making together, for example in our popular percussion ensemble.

The East London Community Band is a registered charity. We offer reduced fees in cases of hardship and provide low-cost instrument hire. We thank you for your continuing support.
