The Hangleton Brass Band

The Hangleton Brass Band is an active, modern, brass band based in Hangleton, in the City of Brighton and Hove, in Sussex, England. We have both an active Senior and Youth Band and take our membership from a wide cross section of the local community. There are currently around 80 members, some of whom play in both bands, with a group of young learners constantly feeding into the Youth Band, which alone has 50 members.We are are currently the only Hove Brass Band.

We have charitable status and operate as a single entity with all proceeds from fundraising, concerts and subscriptions being spent on the band, rather than being targeted at any individuals or sections. We have a large repertoire of music with anything from Mozart to Miller to Mercury!

The Hangleton Brass Band is one of three Brighton Brass Bands..

50th Anniversary Celebrations

On Saturday 13th 2015 Hangleton Band Celebrated our 50th Anniversary at the Windmill Theatre in Hove. Over 135 people came to the afternoon reunion, renewed old acquaintances, ate fabulous food, listened to the 10-piece play, had a go at playing themselves, took part in photo-sessions and ate cake!

The concert inside was fully attended - over 300 people, including the Mayor of Brighton & Hove, watched a musical journey through the last 50 years, watched Alan Thomas's superb solo, a fully automated Youth Band conductor, a timbrel routine and, of course, the finale of the timeless Hootenany!

Huge thanks to everyone behind the scenes who made the whole day possible, including Clair Wilson, Kevin O'Shea, Jane Glineur, Rachel Taylor, Iso Aplin, Rachel Colcombe, Richard Baker and to the members of the Band who came to sub-committee meetings & came along early to help set everything up today.

Photos taken of the event are all below. If you would like to download any of these images you can find the originals on the Hangleton Band Flickr page here
