The Harrogate Band

We're seriously entertaining and are a popular choice for performing at concerts and all sorts of great events. As well as putting on fantastic concerts we compete regularly so our standard of playing is consistently high and we have a reputation for innovation and performing exciting contemporary music. Why not come and see us perform? You'll love what we do and we'd love to see you.

If you'd like to book us for your event please contact the Band's Events and Concert Manager.

Women Make Music Campaign
Brass Bands wouldn't exist without women and yet barely any music is ever performed that has been written by a woman, very few female conductors exist, hardly any women adjudicate brass band competitions. It's a ridiculous situation that is blindly tolerated largely without question.

We've a proud tradition of regularly performing contemporary original music for brass so we're going to start to address this gender imbalance by increasing the amount of music we play composed and arranged by women. Every concert we perform at we will perform at least one piece of music arranged or composed by a woman. It's not much, in fact, we admit it's pitiful but someone's got to start somewhere.

For more details of the campaign, and a list of female composers and their music for brass band, see our Women Make Music page.
