Cold Ash Brass is based in the town of Thatcham, just East of Newbury and south of our original home, Cold Ash, and just a few miles from Junction 13 of the M4.

We are a friendly brass band, playing in the 3rd section of the London and Southern Counties region of the National Championships, with a varied and exciting concert schedule
We rehearse every week on Thursdays at 7:30-9:30pm at the Catholic Hall in Thatcham.

Our Musical Director, Jemma Johnstone, joined us in 2012. Under her leadership we won our first contest in 2014 at SCABA Autumn Contest. Our next venture saw us placing second at the L&SC regional contest meaning another place in the national final. Our hard work came to fruition in 2017 when we were promoted to the second section!


As we enter out 20th year, we look forward to the next 20 years, continually improving and growing as both a band and an organisation.
