The Flowers Band

The award-winning Flowers Band of Gloucester return to Stroud Sub Rooms for an afternoon of world class music making. 

The programme will include a delightful variety of styles, including original music written for the band, classic brass band repertoire, arrangements of pop hits and more!  Flowers' star soloists will be on their feet once again, to dazzle the audience with their virtuosic technique and stunning musicality. 

The band were formed in 1968 from the remnants of the disbanded Band of the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars, and have grown in stature ever since. In recent years the band has cemented it's status amongst the leading bands of the world, with contesting successes at all major competitions and a top 10 ranking for over a decade.  

On the concert scene, the band has appeared at prestigious festivals such as Three Choirs Festival 2023, and Newbury Spring Festival 2024, alongside more unconventional appearances like providing entertainment and national anthems in the show jumping arena of Badminton Horse Trials. The band has forged a reputation for innovative repertoire, high quality playing, all combined with the hilarious commentary of conductor Paul Holland. 

A Flowers Band concert is not one to miss!
