Centenary Concert

Saturday 11th May 2019


Calling all former band members and musicians with a past association with The Shirley Band

We have the greatest pleasure in inviting you to a very special concert to celebrate 100 years of The Shirley Band on Saturday 11th May, at 7.00 p.m. at Shirley Baptist Church, Stratford Road, Shirley Solihull, B90 3BD.

We hope that this celebration concert will be an opportunity to meet friends old and new, enjoy the performance and if you wish, to join the band on stage to perform in the pieces that will conclude this very special concert.

We hope you will be able to join us on this very special day.

Get involved

Those friends who would like to join and play with us in the pieces that will conclude the performance will receive a free ticket for the concert. We can send the music in advance of the day and we hope you will be able to join us for a rehearsal prior to the concert. Further details about this will be shared with you closer to the time

If you would like to join in and play in the pieces at the end of the concert please contact Philip Cooper at:


For those who would simply like to come to the concert, and those who are accompanying people who will be playing with us in the concluding items of the concert, ticket information is available on the band’s website at
