Ashton-on-Mersey Showband

Picture of the Band


Welcome to the Ashton-on-Mersey Showband website


We're back after an enforced break due to UK Covid-19 restrictions. We're lucky in doing so as a number of bands and groups haven't survived but, being totally self-sufficient, we have managed to ride the storm and come back as enthusiastically as before. The band is approaching it's 50th year so watch out for special events and shows commemorating this amazing feat.

Our forthcoming Shows


After our break in 2021, we're organizing a fantastic set of shows for 2022 and 2023 so watch this space for more news on this.

A little bit about us...
