About DGB Community Band

Dronfield and Lowedges Community Brass Band is affiliated to the award winning Dronfield Genquip Band.

The band began in 2001 with just a handful of beginners and is now thriving with around 20-25 regular players of varying levels with a sensible calendar of engagements throughout the year, with an ambition to register to compete at the Yorkshire Area Contest.

During the lockdown, the band has produced 3 socially distanced videos, featuring special guests from some of the Country’s top Brass Bands, and in 2019, the band competed at the Denby Pottery Entertainment Contest, where they enjoyed a performance that earned them second place.

Sarah Billard was appointed as Musical Director in 2019, bringing with her a wealth of musical knowledge and brass experience. Read more about Sarah here

Dronfield and Lowedges Community  Band welcomes brass and percussion players of all ages and ability. We currently have a mix of children and adults of varying standard who rehearse weekly in a relaxed, friendly setting, with support and advice given by more experienced players.

Rehearsals take place at The Micheal Church, Lowedges Road, Lowedges, Sheffield S8 7LD from 6pm to 7.30pm every Sunday
