City of Oxford Silver Band

The City of Oxford Silver Band is Oxford’s oldest brass band with a history that dates back to the 1840s.  We have four active bands from absolute beginners to our senior band which welcomes experienced players and competes in the National Brass Band Championships.

We meet weekly at our bandhall in Temple Cowley, Oxford.

COSB has been training and encouraging new and improving musicians for over 100 years.  We welcome all ages and all abilities and we can even supply an instrument. Find out more about playing with us…
