Description: Deal Brass Academy began as an independent band in 2013. We are a local band for young and old alike, dedicated to encouraging and training young musicians in the playing of brass instruments, maintaining the strong traditions of Brass Band Music which were an important part of the social life of the Kent collieries.

We give between 6 and 10 performances every year, and have played at Folkestone Bandstand in 2017 and 2018. We raise funds for local charities each year by accompanying carol singing in the open air in Christmas week.

We are proud to be affiliated to both the Deal and Betteshanger Rugby Club, who allow us to use the clubhouse for our rehearsals, and to the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club, where we have played for their Beer Festival and at the opening of the Lord Warden Suite in the presence of the Admiral The Lord Boyce. We play each year for the Royal Marines Band Service memorial game at the rugby club. Our band has members from 10 years to – older than we care to reveal! New members, of any age, are always welcome.
