The Ellesmere Big Band is a community band based in Leeston, the band specialises in swing, pop and ballad music and features vocalists. It is one of the oldest bands in the area, originating as the Ellesmere Brass Band in 1902.

Saxes and rhythm were added in 2004 and over the next few years, the band developed into the, predominantly, ‘swing’ band of today.

The band performs for the community, private and corporate events, and is a regular feature of the Christchurch Big Band Festival each Labour Weekend.

Doors open 7pm.
Performance starts at 7:30pm, you will get a seat if you arrive close to 7pm.

The hall is situated up the long driveway, directly next to Domain Park, and there is plenty of well-lit off street parking.

Door sales cash only: Tea, coffee, biscuits and cake available during the break, also bar facilities for cold refreshments throughout the night, Eftpos available for purchases only, no cash-out facility.

Please remember to bring your current Folk Club membership card as this is required for new club licensing.
