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, St David's Hall Cardiff, the Wales Millennium Stadium, the Hoddinott Hall Cardiff, the Senedd, The National Museum of Wales and the Dora Stoutzker Hall Cardiff
