Escafeld Brass Band
The Band was formed in the 1980s and was formed as a non-profit organisation with the purpose of teaching music to people across Sheffield. During this time the band were known as the Grimethorpe youth band, the name was changed to reflect the wider area of Sheffield from where the members came. We are a registered charity and as such perform at a number of charity concerts including Macmillan Cancer Research and concerts to help fund the restoration of the Western Park Bandstand.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly, non-contest band that welcomes anyone to become new members; whether you haven't played in years and want to get back into music, or can't even name any musical instruments but want to have a try. If you come down you will find that the practises are done in a relaxed style while still having focus on playing to the best of your ability.
