Friends of Highams Park - Summer Picnic
3:30pm to 5:30pm
Highams Park

A relaxed event for local families and friends. Bring a picnic and enjoy it while listening to some gentle music. As usual, activities will be available for children and any adults with sufficient energy to have-a-go. This will include, of course, our famous "Welly-Wanging" competition. See the "Events" tab. More details to follow.

The Friends of The Highams Park is a voluntary group in north east London. Its aim is to is to protect and enhance The Highams Park for the benefit of visitors. The group works closely with the London Borough of Waltham Forest who own and manage the park.

The park contains some beautifully landscaped scenery that was designed originally by Humphry Repton. There is a play area for under-7's but no car park or toilets. It is bordered on one side by a part of Epping Forest that contains a large lake.

The nearest railway station is Highams Park on the London to Chingford line.

Details about other parks in Waltham Forest can be found at

The Postcode of the park is IG8 9RB (Henry's Avenue entrance).

There has been a brass band in Harlow since the latter part of the nineteenth century so we are all very proud to be a part of such a tradition in Harlow.

Nowadays the band consists of local players who provide live music for the local community.

Although at present the band does not contest we are of 4th section standard. We are considering returning to the contest arena with the hope of improving our standard.

We rehearse once a week on a Thursday evening from 8pm-10pm at:

The Sunshine Room
Saint Andrew's Methodist Church
The Stow
CM20 3AF

Our music repertoire consists of tradition Brass Band music as well as contemporary pieces and Brass Band arrangements of some pop music!!

We are a friendly band who always welcome players who either wish to join or just come along for a blow.
Please see our vacancies page for more information or get in touch through our contacts page.
