Leyland Champion Brass
Leyland Champion Brass
Leyland Band was established in 1946 in the heart of industrial Lancashire as the Leyland Motors Band, taking its name from the world famous truck and bus company.

Now an independent group of some thirty musicians, the Band has retained its local connection and now proudly bears the name of its home town.

The last twenty five years of the Bands existence has been the most consistently successful in its history. After a meteoric rise through the various sections, the Band has witnessed scores of prize awards at all the major competitions in the brass band arena.

Leyland Band won the 1994 British Open Championships, the All England Masters in 1989, 1992 and 2003, and the 2005 National Brass Band Championships. In 1980, the ensemble was the first western brass band to tour Japan, a country it revisited along with South Korea in the 1990s

Leyland Band has appeared in numerous television and radio broadcasts, specifically for the Granada Band of the Year, BBC Radio 3 and Listen to the Band.

With an impressive discography and has recorded over 40 commercial CDs. Perhaps one of the more surprising recording assignments undertaken was teaming up with the England football team when the Band formed part of the backing for its 1980s World Cup anthem This Time.
