They play on Appledore Quay every Monday evening in summer. They are great musicians who love doing what they do for the enjoyment of other people.

What a better way to round off the day than to listen to some great tunes by the harbour in Appledore. They played with professionalism and enthusiasm and we all loved the music. Well done to the Appledore Band!

We've seen the band at least three times in the last few years and have always found them to be entertaining and accomplished. A charming distraction in a beautiful village.

Monday night sit outside the Seagate with a bear and enjoy the excellent Silver Band. You will not be alone as it gets very packed out on the Quay when they are playing, but life really doesnt get more magical than this .
