great horwood silver band

Est. 1888

About Us

We are a dedicated and well established Brass Band founded 1888, with an extensive library and very well equipped with mostly Sovereign instruments. We play for most occasions including fetes, weddings, private parties and other functions. We already have music for almost any occasion and constantly update our library for any special events or requirements. Just contact our secretary who will be pleased to help.

We are very much part of the life of the village and take enormous pride in helping to raise funds for many local and national Charities. Our total raised / dontated usually stands between £1000 and £2000 per annum.
