Yes! We perform public concerts as well as fetes, garden parties and other private functions. We would be delighted to hear from you and arrange a concert for you.

What exactly is a brass band?

We thought you may be wondering this... A brass band is a unique ensemble that is composed entirely of brass instruments, and has been contributing to the sound of Britain for over 100 years.

Who is in Youth Brass 2000?

We are a band of brass players under the age of 19. There is no lower age limit, and we have had members who are 8 years' old previously. Our alumni have highly varied careers...

Come and see us in Concert!
