Come and join the Band for a great and worthwhile Christmas Event. We will play a concert of Brass Music - of course but more than that we will be helping underprivileged children this Christmas time. The Salvation Army will be making a collection of NEW toys to give to those children who would not normally have a present. If you are able to help, please bring along a NEW gift wrapped toy. ON THE PARCEL, PLEASE PUT A LABEL SAYING 'BOY' OR 'GIRL' AND AN APPROXIMATE AGE RANGE.

Yorkshire Championship Band, "City of Bradford Brass," plays to thousands of people across Yorkshire and the UK. Our repertoire includes all genres of music, from classical, jazz, contemporary, rock, soul, big band, military and many other styles. Under our dynamic Musical Director Lee Skipsey, we have achieved success in contests and concerts alike. If you thought brass bands were about a bunch of chaps sat on a park bandstand, think again. City of Bradford will blow away your misconceptions. Prepare for a varied, powerful and exciting ride !

The City of Bradford Brass Band can trace its history back as far as the early twentieth century and the Salt's Mill Band of Saltaire. What was named the Hammonds Hawley Brass Band in the mid 1990s became Yorkshire Building Society (YBS) Concert Brass. Some of the band's members joined the Hammond's family of bands as children in the 1980?s and have played alongside one another for thirty years. In 2009, following the end of its successful alliance with YBS which saw them compete at the National Finals several times, the band struck out in a new direction. Following discussions with Bradford Metropolitan District Council, the band proudly adopted the City's coat of arms and named themselves the City of Bradford Brass Band. Under this banner the band has flourished, representing Yorkshire three times at the National finals and taking its place in the world's banding elite through promotion to the Yorkshire championship section in January 2015.
