Shanklin Town Brass Band was founded in 1993 and is based in Rylstone Chalet,
which can be found in Rylstone Gardens, Shanklin, on the Isle of Wight.
We have a Senior, a
Youth and an Intermediate Band; the Senior and Youth Bands
regularly give concerts locally in Shanklin and in other venues on the Island.
We also run a dedicated
Brass Academy on Saturday Mornings
during term time, thus enabling musical education, particularly the playing of brass instruments which
are notoriously expensive, to be accessible to as many people as possible.
Our Senior Band
competes in the Fourth Section of the National Brass Band Championships and both
Senior and Youth bands compete at the Spring and Autumn contests run by the Southern Counties Amateur Band Association, where
our Senior Band is currently in the Second Section.
Intermediate Band is our training band for beginners of all ages and
