About us

In 1968 we started life as the British Federation of Brass Bands. Our aim was to support brass bands throughout the UK and help them build a strong future.

More than 45 years later, we are still supporting brass bands, their members and promoting the wider brass band movement.

Although we’ve changed our name to Brass Bands England along the way, we still have the same core values.

Brass Bands England works with a wide range of partners in strategic, tactical and informal ways to help share the fun, challenges and rewards of being involved with a brass band.

We promote and share the brass band story and encourage the support of bands across the country.

We are a voice for our bands and our players and we shout about the life-enhancing benefits of this vital part of our culture.

We’re as passionate about brass bands as you are. Together we can make more noise and more music!
