The band's smaller ensembles (5-piece and 10-piece) performed at a number of venues such as the Zetland Residential Home, the Savoy hotel, East Cliff URC, the Cricketers pub, and the Bournemouth Retired Nurses home. the band has a large repertoire of smaller group music and were able to put out programmes to suit the events.
During September the full band performed their annual Last Night of the Proms concerts at the Regent Centre Christchurch and the Mowlem Theatre Swanage.
A number of new arrangements were performed, 'Wishing you were somehow here again' - Soprano cornet solo, 'Grand Old Dukes' - Cornet Trio (using the nursery rhyme - The grand old Duke of York), 'The Blue and Grey' - a selection of songs from the American civil war, a new arrangement of 'The Battle of Britain', plus the usual proms items to which both auduences waved their flags and sang their hearts out.
