Besses o’ th’ Barn Band is one of the oldest and most famous brass bands in the world.

The band was formed in 1818 and has been wowing audiences all over the UK ever since – A hundred years ago, the band undertook two world tours, a remarkable achievement!

We currently rehearse twice weekly at our band room on Moss Lane in Whitefield.
