RAF Cosford Voluntary Band

Based just outside Wolverhampton, this versatile Band provides musical support for ceremonial and social occasions at RAF Cosford and at other RAF Stations throughout the UK and abroad. They are also a popular attraction at events within the local community.

The Band plays in an assortment of musical styles that reflect the diversity of their engagements. These range from full band events such as concerts and parades, to more intimate occasions like receptions and award dinners. Several woodwind and brass ensembles have been formed to ensure that band members and their audiences enjoy plenty of variety. This also means that their potential clients benefit from an excellent musical mixture from which to choose.

Membership and many other benefits are free and open to all experienced musicians from throughout the Midlands, whether or not you have RAF links. In return, we ask you to bring lots of enthusiasm and a commitment to attend a good number of rehearsals and performances.

There are plenty of opportunities for adventure too. In recent years the Band has participated in concerts in Symphony Hall, Birmingham, together with tours to Cyprus and the Falkland Islands and performances for Her Majesty the Queen and the Princess Royal.

The Bandmaster is Mr Patrick Ryan BA(Hons) LRSM ARCM.
