Abergavenny Borough Band has been in existence for over 100 years. It is a small local charity based in Abergavenny, Monmouthshire and provides musical entertainment to the public, organisations and for civic occasions.
The Band prides itself on its commitment to education and has a junior section where young people under the age of 18yrs can be given tuition in the techniques of playing a brass instrument and be taught to read music.
The senior band (from age 11yrs) has a long tradition of contesting which raises the standard of playing both for the band as a whole and for individual players.
The Band was South East Wales Champions and Joint Champion Band of Wales in 2011/12. It competes in the championship section in Wales and the 1st section nationally.
The Band has performed at a number of prestigious venues including at the 2012 Olympic Park, the Wales Millennium Stadium, the Hoddinott Hall Cardiff and the Dora Stoutzker Hall Cardiff
