Besses o' th' Barn Band is one of the oldest and most famous brass bands in the world.
We have been around since 1818 and have been wowing audiences all over the UK ever since - and a hundred years ago, the band undertook two world tours! A remarkable achievement.
We currently rehearse twice weekly at our band room on Moss Lane in Whitefield.
Please explore the links on the left to find out more about our history, what Besses can do for you, what you can do for Besses, our up-coming concerts and events, galleries etc.
