About the Band

Formed by Frank Every (grandfather of scaba President Norman Every) in 1931, Saint Sebastian Wokingham Band is a friendly 2nd-section band with an active social life.

We are a contesting band, but we try to limit our contest appearances to 3 per year, primarily the National Competition (Area) and contests organised by scaba (Southern Counties Amateur Bands Association). We do however try to attend the Whit Walks events in Saddleworth every other year and have achieved some success; most notably achieving 1st placed 4th Section band at the Greenfield contest in 1999, best 3rd section band at the Diggle contest in 2009 and more recently, best 2nd section at Greenfield in 2011.

In addition to contesting, the band’s calendar includes several concerts, fetes and parades.
