We are a voluntary, non-profit making organisation, with a proud history stretching back to the early 1900s. Our permanent home is at The Band Factory in Althorpe Street, Old Town Leamington Spa. It is a fantastic facility with large rehearsal space, practice rooms, recreational space, kitchen, and its own car park.
We have one of the best modern brass music libraries in the country (upwards of 1100 titles), some wonderful percussion instruments, and a large stock of fine brass instruments purchased with the help of grants from The Arts Council Lottery Funding and The Foundation for Sport and the Arts.
Whoever you are, and whatever your capabilities, you can play your part in our activities - you don't have to be a brilliant musician to join in. There are no auditions or tests. The only thing we ask is that you commit to working hard and to enjoying yourself! Over the years, many hundreds of local people have enjoyed banding with Royal Spa Brass.
In addition to the regular rehearsals for our various bands and ensembles we run special projects and activities including workshops, masterclasses and frequent concerts and public performances. The more experienced Royal Spa Brass players are always on hand to provide encouragement and help to those just starting out.
The popular Ironbridge Gorge Brass Band Festival will take place on The Green at the Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron. Now in its 15th year, the free family event showcases some of the finest brass bands from Shropshire and the surrounding counties.
With some 20 bands performing, it’s the largest, non-competitive brass band festival in the country.
Performances begin at 10am on both days and continue until 5pm on Saturday and 6.30pm on Sunday. Bar drinks and light refreshments will be available to purchase.
