Festival of Brass 2017 Ready to Roll

The Brass Band League are delighted to announce the return of our ever popular Festival of Brass.

14 brass bands will descend on the fabulous Whitla Hall at Queen’s University on Saturday 25th November for what promises to be a fantastic day of music making.

Each band will perform a mini-concert programme ranging from 10-25 minutes, depending on grade, with a panel of adjudicators judging each performance on its musical and entertainment qualities.

The first band will take to the stage at 11am with last band due to finish around 7:30pm

Admission is £5 at the door (children go free) and audience members can come and go as they please on presentation of their ticket.

John Patton

It was with great sadness that the Brass Band League learned of the death of our esteemed Vice President John Patton on Friday.

John was a stalwart of the local banding community and was well known by many. He will be dearly missed.

John’s funeral will take place this coming Wednesday, 27th September, 3.30pm at Roselawn Crematorium.

Our Brand New Website

It’s amazing how quickly things age!

Our old website was only 7 years old but it had ran its course and was really starting to look a bit tired.

We are now delighted to announce our brand new site. It’s built on wordpress technology which means it should be easier to keep up to date with NI brass banding related news.

It will take little while to upload and prepare the content from our old site so please be patient.
