The World-Famous Brighouse and Rastrick Band – in concert at Chester Cathedral

The Brighouse & Rastrick Band is regarded by many as the best and most consistent ‘public subscription band’ in the world.
They are the current Champion Band of Yorkshire and in its time the majority of premier band championships have been held by ‘Briggus’, most recently becoming National Champion Band of Great Britain in 2017, whilst the band has also attracted a formidable reputation for highly entertaining concerts for both the general public and brass band connoisseur.

The band was formed over 130 years ago through public donations given by the townsfolk of the adjacent villages of Brighouse and Rastrick that face each other across the River Calder in West Yorkshire. Today, it still continues to be supported through public subscriptions and its own fundraising efforts.

Come along and enjoy this world-famous band in concert.
