Foresters Brass

Genre

Brass Band

Description

Foresters Brass is based in Leicester and draws players from around the Midlands.

The band can trace its roots back to 1902, forming as the ‘Bread Street Mission Band’. Via several other guises, including The Leicestershire Constabulary Band and the Leicester Home Guard Band, the band began its association with The Foresters Friendly Society in 1957, which is thought to be the longest unbroken sponsorship of any brass band in the country.

Foresters Brass is enormously proud to spread the Foresters name around the UK and overseas, and is grateful to the Foresters Friendly Society for its on-going support. The band has achieved many notable successes over the years, performing in prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and gaining numerous contest successes, including French Open Champions, and an appearance at the National Brass Band Championships in 2012 and 2013.
