Deepcar Brass Band was formed in 1988 as a training band for local youngsters. A founder member of the Band persuaded a group of his colleagues from Deepcar Police Station to take part in a sponsored walk and the £545 they raised was enough to start the band. From those early days when the founders begged and borrowed ancient instruments, we have progressed to a well equipped band mainly due the enthusiasm of members and local community support.

A particularly rewarding feature of the band is that many of the founders have continued to actively support the band long after their children have grown up. Equally past players have returned or stayed to help later generations. The band continues to provide a welcoming environment to all newcomers

Whilst we are no longer a training band, it remains the band policy to encourage and train new players through an active training programme and our players now encompass a wide range in age and experience

In 2007 under the musical direction of Gavin Somerset we registered in the 4th Section and competed at the Area competitions in Bradford in 2008

In 2008 we obtained charitable status. Our registration number is 1125454

In 2010 we appointed Lindon Bolt as a new Musical Director and we hope to move onwards and upwards under his direction.
