Welcome to the Brackley & District Band 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.
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?
We are currently looking to fill the following key positions:

2015 Engagements List Announced
With the area contest over, our focus shifts on a summer filled with some fantastic engagements.
After a successful début at the Pershore Midsummer Brass last year, we are especially pleased to be invited back and not only that, to be playing in the Abbey and Angel Inn.
We're also really excited to be part of the town's Carnival this year - taking part in both the procession from the Leisure Centre and the carnival at the St John's site of the Magdalen school. This promises to be a really fun local event and we're proud to be supporting it as the town's band.
It's also great to be returning to a number of local events which have become somewhat regular entries on our annual engagements list - it's always nice to be asked back year after year!

See you out there!
Brackley & District Band is proud to have taken part in what was an extremely well supported this year's Act of Remembrance in Brackley.
There were over 380 people in the parade, led by members of our senior and junior bands who continued to provide the music for the service held outside the town hall.
