About Great Yarmouth Brass

Great Yarmouth Brass is currently a 4th Section band, conducted by Colin Swaep, based in the seaside town of Great Yarmouth.

We recently finished 3rd in the Regional Championships held in Stevenage, in March, which means we have qualified to represent London and Southern Counties (alongside two other bands) at the National Finals of Great Britain in September, held at Cheltenham Racecourse.

The inspiration behind forming a Brass Band began way back in 1973. A dedicated teacher at the East Anglian School, Mr Colin Godfrey, together with peripatetic music teacher, the late Mr Derek Hacon embarked on a plan to give the partially sighted pupils of the school the opportunity to learn how to read music and play brass instruments within a group. At that time it was not easy to convince the leading lights within the school that their scheme would be worthwhile and plausible due to the wide spectrum of eyesight disabilities within each child. Colin and Derek were adamant that the pupils would find benefits both educationally, on how to read and understand the structure of musical compositions and physically, to learn to play an instrument individually and be able to perform as part of a group. The dedication of Colin and Derek paid off as the East Anglian School Brass Band was formed that year.
