Our Championship level band is currently one of the most successful brass bands in the region, under the musical direction of Paul Fisher. In 2020, the band was promoted to the Championship Section of the National Brass Band Championships, where it competes alongside some of the finest bands in the country.

The band has a busy calendar of local concerts, and it supports several civic events, including Memorial Gardens Concerts, Heritage Day, Remembrance Sunday and Christmas events. In addition the band travels more widely, for example to take part in the annual Whit Friday March contest at Saddleworth and other national contests.

The band has a widely varied repertoire which includes arrangements of popular orchestral classics, film music, jazz and popular selections, and of course, brass band standards.

The band has weekly rehearsals at our bandroom on Mondays from 8pm to 10pm and more frequently prior to major performances. Membership fees, policies, and other membership information can be found on our members page.
