The BM&W Brass Band

bmw brass band 2017

Rehearsals at The Maltings (Parish Rooms)

7:30 – 9:00 pm

There is no pressure on anyone to return if they have any concerns about Covid  or don’t feel ready to mix again.


The BM&W Brass Band was formed in 1964 from three local bands; Brassington Silver Prize Band, Middleton Victoria Silver Band and Wirksworth Silver Prize Band.  The bands were short of players and the late Mr I Spencer and others decided to amalgamate the three bands to ensure a successful future.

The BM&W Brass Band welcomes new players and is available to hire for local events.  They are also developing a small ensemble band available for hire for weddings and private functions.

BM&W Brass are a friendly non-registered band led by our MD Sarah Fellows. We play a fun and eclectic range of music from traditional to contemporary pieces. The band enjoys a sensible mix of engagements throughout the year including our own themed concerts. We rehearse each Wednesday from 8pm to 9.30 at the Parish Rooms, Wirksworth.
