Established in 1822, the Royal Buckley Town Band is a friendly community brass band based in Buckley, Flintshire.
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, all our activities stopped for fourteen months, including rehearsals, concerts, contests, other group activity & individual lessons.
We are now taking our first, tentative steps towards the new normal as we return to (Welsh regulations) rehearsals.
Royal Buckley perform all styles of music, from traditional brass band repertoire to arrangements of modern pop songs and more. Instantly recognisable and proudly at the head of many a parade, Royal Buckley are busy throughout the year with various engagements and are ranked Second Section.
Music Director: Keith Gorton Jones
Established January, 2016, Buckley Brass is an addition to the prestigious Royal Buckley Town Band . The band is a fantastic opportunity for people to develop their playing skills and are ranked Third Section.
Music Director: Steve Pugh-Jones
Experienced players who meet weekly to pursue their playing and are an integral part of the Royal Buckley family. They are very much in demand and hugely popular at local functions throughout the year.

As we return to regular rehearsals, We are looking to recruit Baritone and Bass players to bring the band up to full strength. Rehearsals will take place at our newly refurbished, COVID safe bandroom.
We will be celebrating our Bicentenary next year with some very special events.
Newly promoted to 3rd Section, we are looking to fill vacancies, particularly back row cornets and basses, but all players are welcome.
Rehearsals will take place at our newly refurbished, COVID safe bandroom.
Tuesday 7:30 - 9:30pm
Wednesday 7:30 - 9:30pm
Sunday 7:00 - 9:00pm (no rehearsal Sept 19th)
Tuesday 2:00 - 3:00pm
We look forward to announcing our plan of events soon.
As the bands are often booked up to a year ahead, please don't hesitate to contact us with your bookings, requests or queries.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Royal Buckley face some of the most challenging times ever encountered in our (almost) 200 year history.
Our every event since March 2020 has been cancelled & we desperately need to raise funds, to cover our essential costs to maintain & provide utilities for our band room until we can rehearse & perform once more.
