Beer and brass...

Bring the whole family and join Hepworth Band for a free concert outside the Butcher’s Arms, Hepworth, on Sunday, July 22, at 2.00pm.

The Band will be playing a selection of easy listening music for a couple of hours over the afternoon, so you can enjoy a pint while listening to a Championship band.

Thanks to landlord Mark for hosting the event and particularly to Mathew Golden of R.N. Golden Ltd. for supporting the “Brass at the Butchers” series of summer concerts.

We’ll be back at the Butcher’s Arms on Sunday, September 2 for more Beer’n’Brass as we look forward to our autumn season of concerts and events.

A village band proud to be ranked among the best

The Band was formed in the village of Hepworth, near Holmfirth, in 1882, making it one of the oldest brass bands in the country. Today, it competes in the Championship Section, making it one of the best bands in the UK.

It has had a proud contesting tradition since its founding, and in recent years, has won a string of prestigious prizes. At the same time, it runs its own concert series every year, supports local charities and other events, including the famous Hepworth Feast, and appears at other venues across the U.K. throughout the year.

The Band relies on generous donations from a number of companies, both national and local, for its continued existence. Since the beginning it has also relied heavily on subscriptions raised from local people, and this tradition continues today.
