Dove Holes Brass Band


Live Performance
Brass Band


Dove Holes Brass Band was established in 1877. It originally supported local functions but later in competed successfully in contests, including Belle Vue where they won over ten contests.

In 1933, it was reported that Dove Holes Band was one of the best for many miles. In 1948, after the war, the band was rebuilt with many young people receiving tuition and thrived again providing music for the local community.

The list of prizes won by the band from 1925 until 1968 is long and illustrious.

Our real home is in Dove Holes in the beautiful Peak District of Derbyshire, England. We are a varied team ranging from under ten to over eighty years old. Our musical abilities vary from the absolute beginner to budding maestro. We are a now a non-contesting band providing concerts of a high standard.

We are available to play concerts and at various events, subject to availability and travelling distance.

We always welcome players, new and not so new to our band. Training is normally available for those who need a little help getting started. We do however seek some form of commitment from our players in that once established, we would expect regular attendance at rehearsals and engagements.
