All welcome!

Cawthorne Brass Band is a non-contesting traditional village band, which has existed since 1873. It is a self-funding band, raising money from member subscriptions, engagements at fetes, galas, church services, etc., plus a number of formal concerts. The band undertakes a variety of engagements every year, mainly within the Barnsley area.

The members of the band have chosen not to take part in brass band contests. Many have contested in the past but now want to continue making music without this pressure. The band still strives for a high standard of playing, performing music which is both challenging to play and enjoyable for the audience.

We have always encouraged new players, both young and not so young, to join the band and anyone is welcome to come to a rehearsal to play or just to listen if they want to. Thanks to grants from the National Lottery and the Foundation for Sport and The Arts, we were able to buy a full set of new instruments a few years ago, which allows us to offer an instrument to members who need one. New players, either those who have some experience or those wanting to learn are always welcome to join.
