"Abergavenny Borough is a brass band as it should be - big sound, big heart, big round of applause!" - Charles Hazlewood
Abergavenny Borough Band is available to play at a wide array of events such as fetes, carnivals, garden parties, formal concerts, weddings, birthdays and many more. In fact, if you feel a live brass band would enhance your particular event why not give us a call.
We have an extremely varied repertoire from traditional brass band items, music from stage and screen, christmas music and light popular and classical arrangements.
The Band rehearses every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 7.30pm until 9.30pm
The band room can be found at the end of Prospect Road (NP7 5DU), just off Merthyr Road. It is close to the Somerset Arms Pub & Keith Price Volvo Garage
Presenting a year-round programme of professional and community productions, the Borough Theatre is a lively venue situated right in the centre of the historic market town of Abergavenny, the traditional Gateway to Wales.
Owned and managed by Monmouthshire County Council, the theatre is part of the town hall building and dates back to 1870. It was extensively renovated in the early 1990s and boasts an intimate auditorium with excellent sight-lines and acoustics, which succeeds in blending historic and traditional features with a modern ambience.
The theatre presents a wide-ranging programme of live events each year featuring drama, opera, ballet, a wide range of live music concerts, children’s events, musicals, comedy, dance and storytelling.
We are very proud of the fact that many headline artistes from the UK and overseas visit the Borough Theatre (going back to The Beatles in 1963…) as well as some of the most interesting new companies creating theatre and dance. Our programme aims to appeal to all tastes and ages – with shows for everyone from pre-school years upwards.
The performing tradition runs deep in Abergavenny and the town supports many local amateur theatre and operatic companies who regularly perform at the Borough Theatre. It is from these local amateur companies that the theatre has drawn many of its team of volunteers who act as stewards, stage crew, and bar staff.
Although much has been achieved, the ever growing demand for use of the theatre from both the professional and community sectors only goes to demonstrate that much work lies ahead in the quest to extend and develop the activities and facilities which have made the Borough Theatre Monmouthshire’s “Jewel in the Crown”.
There are many ways in which you can help us achieve our aims. You can join us as a volunteer member of our front of house or technical team. You can make a donation towards – or sponsor – our activities, and you can support us by bringing friends and family along with you to watch events in this wonderful and historic building.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Borough Theatre!
