Welcome to the Brackley Brass Website
Brackley & District Band was formed in the mid 1970s when a group of young musicians finished their time at school, but still wanted to enjoy playing in a Brass Band. Soon after this our Junior Band was also started. For over 30 years it has been based in the Band Club in the centre of Brackley. Some players still remain from the early days.
The Band has contested at all levels over the years, competing against some of the top bands in the country.
Following a rebrand to take the band into the future, we introduced a new logo and name, becoming "Brackley Brass".
The band rehearses 7:45pm to 9:45pm, Mondays and Fridays in the Band Club. If you're looking for a new band, or a new challenge as a brass player, or would like to add some brass band magic to your event, we'd love to hear from you!
Looking to join a friendly, hardworking and forward thinking Brass Band with an exciting future?

Solid result at the 2014 Areas
With a number of recent signings and a new MD, a solid 6th place on Sunday at the Midland Areas puts the band in a good position to consolidate and move forwards.
A prize winning day at the ODBBA contest!
The band had a fantastic day at the 2014 ODBBA Winter Contest today, taking the win in Section A for the test piece (ahead of higher section bands!) and receiving The Hawkes Challenge Shield. That’s not all though, as we also placed 2nd for the march and our principal euphonium, James Randle, scooped the best instrumentalist prize.
