Thank you for visiting our website. We are a vibrant and friendly Third Section brass band and are based near the centre of Littleborough in Lancashire. We perform contests and concerts throughout the year and are available for bookings for all occasions. If you would like more information or to make a booking, please use the details found on the ‘Contact us’ page.

Welcome to the Littleborough Band Website

We are a third section brass band, nestled in the Pennines in the heart of Littleborough, Lancashire. Since our formation in 1862, we have competed against and beaten many of the top bands in the country.  Take a look at our ‘History’ pages to see details of the titans we have defeated over the years, including the mighty Brighouse and Rastrick Band – albeit some years ago!

Our recent promotion from the fourth section is a testament to our current members’ commitment and dedication. Details on the members of the band can be seen on the ‘Meet the Band’ pages.

Littleborough Band is always on the lookout for like-minded players to join our ranks. If you would like to join or maybe just come down to blow away the cobwebs, feel free to drop in to a rehearsal which are held on Mondays and Thursdays from 7.45pm to 9.45pm. See our ‘Vacancies’ section for details on current positions available. In addition to the main band, we are proud to support the Littleborough Training Band and their latest venture, the Littleborough Beginner’s Band. We can offer plenty to people young or old with differing levels of ability. For more information, please see the ‘Contact us’ page.
