Hepworth Brass Band Hepworth Brass Band


Hepworth, the village from which the band takes its name is situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park, close to the ‘Summer Wine’ town of Holmfirth in West Yorkshire.

There has long been a strong tradition of brass bands and music making in the Holme Valley and Hepworth has been a part of this since its formation in 1882. The bands long history puts it amongst the oldest brass bands in the country.

Throughout its history the band has enjoyed notable contest success. The band has represented Yorkshire at the finals of the British Brass Band Championships at the Royal Albert Hall in three of the last six years and has taken titles at the Scottish Open Championships the Saddleworth Whit Friday March Championships and the British Open Grand Shield.

As well as the bands impressive record on the contest platform, it is equally at home on the concert stage, where it has gained a reputation for presenting varied, exciting and polished performances. The band promotes its own annual concert series and performs further a field in ‘Championship Brass’ concert series promotions, festivals and in concerts with some of the Country’s leading Choirs.

The band has been featured in a special edition of BBC ‘Songs of Praise’, performing with Lesley Garret to mark the final episode of the ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ programme, and has also performed for the BBC Radio ‘Listen to the Band’ programme. This year the band made its debut at the Great Northern Brass Arts Festival at Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.

The band has also performed with international trumpet soloist Huug Steketee for his solo CD ‘Shining Waters’. ‘Portraits’ features the band with soloists from the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Orchestra of The Hague.
