  • Local Brass Band ? originally the Upper Norwood Temperance Prize Band (1901-1924) - still doing playing to the masses all over the South East of England at concerts, theme days etc. etc. Training Band, formed in 1995 flourishing nicely. Both groups currently have vacancies for new players (even beginners) - all ages/backgrounds welcome. A limited number of (mainly larger) instruments are available on indefinite loan in return for a reasonable termly/annual subscription, so applications for people over 14 years particularly welcomed!! Bookings now being taken for 2002/03 so please bear these people in mind if you have an event which requires quality live music at a reasonable cost. Music and instrumentation can be tailored to suit your requirements. Rehearsals on Wednesday evenings at St. John the Evangelist Parish Church, Penge at 8pm (training band at 7pm). Plans are now well under way for a busy summer concert season. Contact: or visit( the Band's own website for further details and/or join the Mailing List.
  • Gipsy Hill Tavern has live acoustic music on Thursdays, and occasional Sundays. Very nice, friendly pub with small beer garden.
  • The Crystal Palace Park Bowl hosts all sorts of stuff in the summer: a quirky venue with the stage over a little lake. Anything from classical to soft rock and chart-dance: very variable, but worth checking. Lots of pubs have sort of pubby music as well, a bit more varied. A few DJ nights, but nothing out of the ordinary.
