Reading Band

Reading Spring Gardens is a brass band that has been entertaining the community in and around Reading since 1899 and is synonymous with the late legendary trumpet player Derek Watkins and his family. Today, the band enjoys renewed success on the concert and competition stage inspired by the musical directorship of the late David Ruel.
