Diggle Community Brass

Our first rehearsal under Covid 19 regulations – feeling a little strange!

Welcome to Diggle Community Brass – a happy new band based at Diggle Band Club. Formerly linked to Diggle Band, as Diggle B Band, we have become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation in our own right, so that we can focus on making music in, and with, the community. We are now starting to operate in line with Covid-19 restrictions. See how here.

We welcome new players – if you have found an old cornet in the loft, then why not bring it along? We have instruments for loan if you just fancy giving brass playing a whirl.

We are grateful for the support of First Choice Homes through the ROCA Grant, to help us with the provision of PPE and new outdoor coats. These were invaluable in our busking activities around Christmas.

Diggle Community Brass spent several evenings busking round the village prior to Christmas 2020
