Welcome to the

Poulton-le-Fylde Band

The Poulton-le-Fylde Band is a british brass band that has been existence since 25th September 1875. Whilst most of our time is taken up with rehearsing for concerts that are performed throughout the year, competition work is also very important to us as quite simply it raises our standard.

In 2003, under the direction of Mr Gordon Clough, the band was promoted to the National 1st Section. In 2009, under the direction of Cpt.Gary Clegg, we were further promoted to the National Championship Section of Great Britain. As at 2013, after a period of 2 years in the Championship Section, the band returned to the 1st Section. With the appoinment of Alex Webb as its Resident Conductor in August 2018, the band will be competing in the 2nd Section wef January 2019.

In 2022, the band were placed 3rd at the National Qualifiers and qualified for a place at the National Finals in Cheletenham later that year. Following the National Finals, Dr L.Brett Baker was appointed at the band's Musical Director.
