North London Brass has moved!




North London Brass (NLB) is a network of traditional British brass bands and our affiliated Foundation Band for learners of all ages.

Formed in 2010, NLB has now grown to a strong network of community brass bands across the London area.

We've played on BBC and ITV television, taken part in experimental arts projects and played prestigious London venues and events including The Royal Hospital Chelsea, Westminster Abbey, outside The Saatchi Gallery, The London Marathon, RAF Hendon Air Museum and Wesley's Chapel.

We are establishing a regular programme of repeat events and shows, including an annual Tour to the Isle of Wight.

Our North London Brass bands are organised into local hubs (City of London, Enfield & Edmonton, Muswell Hill and Putney & Wandsworth).

We pride ourselves on encouraging and developing excellence. But we also retain a friendly and supportive ethos where everyone is welcome and included, especially learners and returning players of all ages and ability.

NLB is run on a professional basis, which for us means that we seek out the best professional musicians to lead our projects, provide excellent facilities and an extensive library in exchange for a modest, regular membership fee.

This entitles players to attend our NLB regular weekly rehearsals and our NLB Contest Band sessions, plus our symphony orchestra, ENJO Jazz Orchestra projects, quarterly Masterclass Workshops, performances and much more.

We're proud of our high quality coaching support and or our family spirit where everyone is encouraged to reach their full musical potential.
