The 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 and contesting was very much the focus. Presently, whilst still taking part in the annual Midlands Regional Contest in the Fourth Section, the primary aim of the Band is to put on enjoyable, innovative and engaging concerts for both our players and more importantly our audiences. 

The Band is available to hire for a variety of events; fetes, birthday parties, weddings, christenings, sporting events and more. Whilst we are always striving to attract new players, we are currently unable to offer a full brass band for hire. However, we are able to provide a reduced size brass ensemble which is often a more suitable option when considering space and financial requirements. We hope to be able to offer a full brass band as soon as possible. We'd love to hear from you if you'd like to discuss having us perform at your event.
