Welcome to the Morecambe Brass Band Association (Charity Registration No. 1133214).
COVID-19 UPDATE 11/07/20
Due to to the ongoing COVID-19 virus, all rehearsals and concerts are still cancelled as well as all playing in any size groups. No dates or information have as yet been given when we can start playing again but we do hope that we will be able to start again sometime.
We still hope that our Remembrance and Christmas concerts can still go ahead but unfortunately, our normal venue, The Platform at Morecambe, is unavailable for the rest of 2020. If we are able to go ahead with these concerts, details about venue, ticket prices and any COVID-19 restrictions will be published when available.

All of us at Morecambe Band are thinking of our friends and followers at this strange and difficult time. We hope you are all staying safe and well in your homes.
The band members have been staying in touch with each other using social media and have even been sharing videos of their playing at home. Andrew is also sharing his top tips and practice techniques with players to encourage us to keep playing!
Several members of the band are keyworkers so we would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you and well done to them and all those working in the NHS and other key worker roles, you are all doing a fantastic job.
Stay at home and stay safe everyone

BAND HISTORY. Our page showing the history of the band has been updated November 2019.
The Morecambe Brass Band Association is based in North Lancashire, in the traditional seaside town of Morecambe. The Association consists of two bands catering for all musical abilities and interests, from beginner upwards to seasoned professional. The bands play regularly in local concerts and music festivals across Lancashire and Cumbria.
UNIVERSITY STUDENTS… Are you coming to the University of Cumbria (Lancaster campus) or to the Lancaster University and want to continue playing whilst away from your home band? Then please consider the Morecambe band, transport can be arranged from Lancaster to Morecambe as we have a few players that live in Lancaster, or, travelling expenses can be agreed, you do not have to commit to two practices a week, please contact our secretary if interested.
PLEASE NOTE…. The Bay Brass Band at present has been amalgamated into the main Morecambe Brass Band with rehearsals on Mondays and Thursdays. We hope that sometime in the future we will run the Bay Brass again.
Please feel free to look around the website for information on future music events and how to join the band if you are interested in playing. Our rehearsal room is situated near to Morecambe Police Station. Please contact our secretary if you would like any further information.
