Brass bands on screen

Over the years the brass bands in the UK, and elsewhere, have appeared numerous times on screen, whether in feature films or on television programmes. In most cases they are small appearances fulfilling the role of a “local” band in the background or supporting a musical event in the plot of the drama. At other times band have a more central role in the production, featuring in a documentary or being a major part of the activity. With the help of some Facebook brass band groups I have extended my original listing of about 120 such appearances to around 450, from 1931 to 2019. This can be found on my Academia site at

Here are a few stills from film and TV shows:
