Who We Are?

We are an amateur brass band based in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

As the Doncaster area’s leading brass band, we aim to provide entertainment, through concerts and participation in contests, for the enjoyment of all ages – both the public and our band members.

Our principal objective is to advance, improve, develop, and maintain education in, and appreciation of, the art and culture of brass band music in all its aspects, through practice, training, and performance.

As part of our communities’ cultural heritage, we aspire to stimulate and encourage young people to participate in brass band activities, by providing learning and development opportunities and the facilities for anyone who may be interested in learning.

Please use this website to find out the latest news about the band, our upcoming engagements, and our current player line-up.   Along with information regarding how to sponsor the band, our Funding page explains how you can help with band funds simply by doing your online shopping.  There’s also our 100 Club, where you can join with other supporters of the band and compete for the monthly lottery prizes.
