The season ends

The summer bandstand season is over! Lambeth Wind Orchestra has played it’s last two summer performances of the year. On Sunday 10th we played at the Herne Hill Market bandstand to promote the upcoming Herne Hill Music Festival, and just this past Saturday the band opened for the Marchmont Street Party.

The band chose to mark the end of the season by celebrating another recent season’s end: Game of Thrones season 7. If you look closely you might notice some special guests in attendance. Folks came from all over Westeros.

Three videos from the Herne Hill Market bandstand performance, “Game of Thrones“, “The Incredibles” and “Sweet Gingerbread man” are now on the video section of the Gallery page.

Remembering Bruce

In the past week we sadly lost one of our very best

Lambeth Wind Orchestra chose to remember Sir Bruce Forsyth at Clapham Common by performing a song made famous by his US counterpart Sammy Davis Junior: “Sweet Gingerbread man”. Bruce and Sammy performed together a few times in their career, and there are plenty of other parallels to draw from the two, as all-round showmen, presenters, and crooners. Absolutely irreplaceable.

Two videos from this concert at Clapham Common on Sunday, “Bandology” and “Symphonic Beatles” are now on the video section of the Gallery page.

We are performing next on Sunday 10th September at the Herne Hill Music Festival at the Market Bandstand between 11 AM and midday, and again on Saturday 23rd September at the Marchmont Street Party from midday.

From Gallifrey to Greenwich

It has recently been announced that Jodie Whittaker will be the next Doctor Who.

Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor

Lambeth Wind Orchestra was so excited by the news of a freshly regenerated Time Lord by Christmas, that we simply had to treat Sundays audience of the Greenwich Park bandstand to a rendition of the Doctor Who theme. This is the modern Murray Gold version of the original Ron Grainer theme, arranged for concert band by John Holland.

Bringing Broadway to Myatts Fields Park!

Have you seen the Broadway musical 42nd street yet? It’s absolutely fantastic.


Lambeth Wind Orchestra made their triumphant return to Myatts Fields Park on Sunday, 23rd July. The rain threatened but held off and the enthusiastic audience loved our rendition of 42nd street. Luckily an audience member had their smartphone handy and captured our efforts! See below:
