Following the band's success in 2015 and being promoted to the 3rd Section, the band are delighted to have achieved 3rd place in the 2016 Yorkshire Regional Brass Band Championships which took place in St George's Hall Bradford. The band enjoyed playing the test piece, 'A Cambrian Suite', based on Welsh national melodies. We will include it in some of our concerts this year, and hope you will enjoy it too. The band also was awarded the 'youngest player' prize for one of our percussionists.
Our Spring and Summer events are becoming finalized and we hope that you will come and listen to and enjoy the band at one or more of our many concerts.
See the engagements list for details.

The Village of Oughtibridge has supported some sort of music making group for
well over 100 years. The Band in its current state was formed in 1890. Throughout its history the Band has supported local events
such as Church Parades, Galas, Carol Concerts etc as well as taking the village
name far and wide with their tours and engagements.
