Pictur of early band

Besides enabling amateur brass players to make music together, the Band brings enjoyment to audiences at local events of many kinds, including festivals, garden parties, official functions and fund-raising concerts. joint performances with the band of Wissen,  Letchworth's twin town in Germany, have been a feature of several exchange visits in recent years.

The Band is funded mainly by its membership fees and by its public performances.
