Voluntary, sociable and fun, non-contesting Brass Band.
Brass bands are known to have been in existence in Ashbourne since 1861. Since then there have been several bands including; Ashbourne Band, Ashbourne Volunteer Band, Bells Band and Rechabites Band. These have merged over the years to form the band which exists today - Ashbourne Town Band.
The band is located in the market town of Ashbourne gateway to Dovedale and on the edge of the Peak District.
Practices are held at St. John's Community Centre, The Green Road (DE6 1GQ) every Wednesday (8pm to 9.30pm) and Sunday evening (7pm to 8.30pm).
We also teach youngsters (and oldsters) from the age of eight. The learners group currently has vacancies, see the Join Us page for more details. Learners group is held on Sunday evenings 6.00pm at St. John's Community Centre.
We are always on the lookout for additional experienced and semi experienced players to join our friendly non-contesting band.

Parking is available at the leisure centre or in the pay and display car park on Vicarage Road.
Entrances are wide enough for wheelchairs. The park has many paths and is largely flat but there is a steep hill to the south of the bandstand.
