Welcome to the Tadley Brass Band Website
1875-2021 146 Years
The Tadley Band is a traditional English Brass Band which was formed around 1875.
We are an experienced brass ensemble with a common interest in making quality music in the Hampshire / Berkshire area.
Tadley is a small town on the Berkshire / Hampshire border centrally located in the triangle that joins the larger towns of Reading, Newbury and Basingstoke. Players within the band come from all walks of life and travel from far afield to be part of this unique musical setup.
Our New Uniform Project has recently received a welcome boost in the form of a grant of £620 from the Greenham Charity Youth Distribution Committee. This committee consists of eight sixth-formerís from four different schools. As we plan to keep up our link with the primary school in Tadley, it is really encouraging to know that a group of young people have chosen to support us in this way. After all, it is young people who will be the band-players of the future. Our thanks go to the committee for their generous donation. A further thank you to all that have donated through the Good Exchange.
When restrictions are eased, we will be looking to order the new uniform. In the meantime, as we have not yet reached our total, the Project is still live on the Good Exchange platform and donations can still be made via this link:
