About this cause

Our aim is to educate and entertain the public of Whitburn, West Lothian and the wider community in the art of brass band performance. We aim to redevelop local appreciation of this art allowing the local young people to find an interest in playing brass instruments. We offer opportunities for local musicians and our development bands offer teaching and learning for local children. We also have a strong link with our local community in Whitburn performing at least four times per year offering free concert tickets to the care homes in the area. Our heritage has come from the local mining community dating back over a century which gives the locals something to be proud of as part of their history, there are generations of ex­mining families that are members of the band.
