Who are we?

Valley Brass Band is situated in the historic former Richard Evans School building on West End Road, Haydock, St. Helens. We are a 2nd section band and perform regionally and nationally in competitions, in addition to performing for events and special occasions within our local community. We aim to encourage musical interest and develop talent in all age groups and abilities; providing professional and patient tuition to both beginners and experienced players alike. Furthermore, our designated band room and community centre provides a space for our groups to assemble weekly in a friendly and enjoyable environment.

Our centre includes a games room complete with pool and table tennis tables, a social area for tea and coffee, and an outdoor playground with a multi-use sports cage and outdoor games.


We provide tuition to all age groups and abilities. Our professional tutors will help to get you started and develop in learning a brass instrument (percussion tuition is also available).
