The band

Lambeth Wind Orchestra is a South London Concert Band based in Herne Hill. LWO performs a varied programme of music for the community both formally and informally. Our concert programmes have included music by Gustav Holst, Percy Grainger, Philip Sparke, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Malcolm Arnold and Samuel-Coleridge-Taylor alongside newly written pieces by London based composers. We also enjoy performing a variety of British light music by composers such as Robert Farnon, Eric Coates and Frederick Curzon. Our performances take place on bandstands around London, including Clapham Common, St James’s Park and Battersea Park, at local festivals and at our own formal concerts. A full list of our past upcoming and past performances can be found here.
