Originally called the Cobham and District Band this band was formed in 1887 and had strong
connections with the Ancient Order of Foresters. Beginning as a drum and fife band, parish
magazines of the late 19 th century show that the band took a lively part in village life and was
then, a marching band. Going through various changes over the years it became an ‘All
Brass’ band in 1970.
The band embraces music of all styles and presents varied and entertaining programmes of
high quality led by their Musical Director Glenn Hayter who has been with the band since
The band has performed at a number of prestigious venues including Westminster Abbey
Gardens, several Royal Parks and The Yehudi Menuhin School in Cobham.....and now again
at the Addlestone Community Centre!

Now until 13 October - The Rivers of Runnymede Exhibition
Liquid History – The Rivers of Runnymede - 24 March to 13 October 2018
Chertsey Museum’s new exhibition, Liquid History – The Rivers of Runnymede, takes a look at some of the Borough’s rivers; their history and their impact on the lives of those who live and work on them.
The Borough of Runnymede has a number of rivers, including the Chertsey and Addlestone Bourne, the River Wey and the Abbey River, all of which flow into the Thames within the Borough’s boundaries. However, a quick glance at an old map makes one realise just how many other rivers, tributaries and water run-off ditches have been built over as the Borough’s towns have expanded to meet the demands of population growth.
The exhibition looks at ancient settlements and archaeological finds from the rivers; bridges and ferries; weirs, locks and mills; river industries and leisure pursuits. Some of the finds on display in the exhibition, or elsewhere in the Museum, include a replica of the bronze Chertsey Shield found in Abbey Meads in 1985, a magnificent 10th century Viking sword found in 1981 during gravel extraction at Mixham’s Pit, now part of Penton Hook Marina; a late Bronze Age (c.800-600 BC) socketed axe head cast in bronze and an Iron Age cauldron from about 500 BC, both found at the Charlton pit on the Shepperton Ranges.
Opening Hours: Tuesday-Friday 12.30 to 4.30, Saturday 11 to 4
Closed Sunday & Monday
