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..

Hangleton Senior Band

The Hangleton Senior band is made up of approximately 25 brass and percussion players from the Brighton and Hove area. Many of our members came up through the ranks of the Youth Band, reinforcing the strong links and sense of community between the two bands. We play a wide variety of music, ranging from classical works to arrangements of chart music.

We put on two annual concerts, and play at a variety of other venues such as bandstands during the year in the Brighton and Hove area and around Sussex. 

We are also contesting band, and compete in both local (Southern Counties Amateur Bands Association Second Section) and National ( Fourth Section) competitions. We have qualified for the National Brass Band Finals, in the Third Section, twice in the last ten years - in 2008 and again in 2011.

We are a friendly bunch and put on a variety of social events for our members during the year. New members are always welcome. If you are interested in coming along to a rehearsal email for more details.
