Linthwaite Brass Band or Linfit Band as it is affectionately known, if you are local, is located in the heart of Linthwaite.
Our band is steeped in history and currently, we are in a comfortable position in the 4th Section of the British Brass Band Association league tables, and we are a coiled spring ready to bounce into the league above. Along the way, if we can maintain our policy of promoting the talents of young (and older) players, then success will come to all as shown in our history of contest achievements and the numerous players who have moved on to top flight bands or become professional musicians.
Linfit Band has always been a self-supporting village band without
any funding from sponsorship or the constraints of "club" facilities
and prides itself on being able to make its way each year, although
if you can lend a hand, get in touch.
The band rehearses on Monday & Wednesday evenings, at Broad Oak Cricket Club, Cowlersley Lane, Linthwaite.
Following the success of Linthwaite Band becoming 4th section Yorkshire Champions in 2012, we were invited to compete in the National Championships at Cheltenham, gaining a very creditable 8th place.
2013 saw Linthwaite competing in the 3rd section, where we were very pleased to be placed 3rd, playing Hollywood!
