Welcome to St Albans City Band

band_2011We are a friendly and community focussed brass band who have been making a contribution to local musical life for over 120 years. A busy schedule of concerts and engagements finds the band performing throughout Hertfordshire and beyond. We also have our own 10-piece group for hire who play a wide variety of music both old and new. 

We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 8 - 10pm at our very own Bandroom which is located at Unit 5a, Parkway, Porters Wood, St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL3 6PA. 

If you'd like to come along and meet us, please contact us.


Elsewhere on our site you may have seen references to brass band contests. You may have wondered what this is all about and what relevance doing well in them (as we have done in recent years) has for us, or indeed yourselves. Most people are familiar with hearing a brass band outdoors on a Summer's day, but if you'd like to know what we get up to for much of the rest of the year, then you’ve come to the right place!

Since 2000, the band has risen from Section 4 to Section 1 of the London & Southern Counties Area grading system and also represented their region at the National Finals. What does this mean and how did it happen?
