We're all about raising money for charity. All our appearances have a serious side, to raise awareness and funds for our charity of choice.
Falmouth Marine Band has raised thousands for local charities. The Band do not support national charities, but try and fill a gap locally, supporting young people and others who may not get any help.
Great fun and always in a good cause. Do not miss the opportunity to savour the unique vision and sound of the Falmouth Marine Band if you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity.
The Falmouth Marine Band was originally formed in 1989 as a one-off attempt to support Falmouth Carnival but has since become a firm favourite and a modest highlight of the year procession. It was then, and remains today, a bit of fun.
We quickly realised that there was a strong public demand for the marching disharmony. We were encouraged by friends and family and the local Falmouth community to build upon on our initial concept as something special. We used our new found fame and started collecting money as we marched; normally the shock of our unique sound is enough to encourage generous donations. True to this day - every single penny collected by the Falmouth Marine Band is donated in support of local good causes.
