THE OFFICIAL DIRECTORY FOR EAST GRINSTEAD
Whatever you are looking for, East Grinstead probably has it.
As a not for profit organisation we list free of charge all the businesses in the town (any missing will soon be added) to help residents and visitors keep things local.
The EAST GRINSTEAD CONCERT BAND (founded in 1974 from the original Town Band) is a friendly and active community based concert wind band which attracts a diverse membership throughout the East Grinstead area and beyond, of all ages and experience. The Band today follows proudly in the traditions of our musical forefathers of the old Town Band and are proud to represent the wonderful town of East Grinstead, whilst playing throughout the local area and abroad.
Like the old Town Band, the current East Grinstead Concert Band (EGCB) regularly performs at many local events and venues including the East Grinstead May Fair, the BBC Sussex & Surrey’s Community Heroes Awards, at East Court, St Swithun’s Church, Eastbourne Bandstand, Horsham Park Bandstand, Sissinghurst Castle and The Pantiles, Royal Tunbridge Wells. In August 2014, the Band played at the official unveiling by HRH The Princess Royal, of the statue of Sir Archibald McIndoe - the pioneering plastic surgeon who worked at the Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead.
Under the banner of the BLUEBELL RAILWAY BAND we perform at Horsted Keynes and Sheffield Park Railway Stations and at various events throughout the year including the very popular Bluebell Railway’s Carol Service. The Bluebell Railway was the UK's first preserved standard gauge passenger railway in the world to operate a public service and we were honoured to play at East Grinstead Station when the Bluebell Railway extension opened in March 2013.
