The Longridge Band is a brass band based in Lancashire. Longridge is a small town approximately six miles east of Preston. The band is thought to be one of the oldest in the UK, with the first known public performace dating back to 1845.
The band have received a donation from the Music Mates charity. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone associated with Music Mates for their generous donation, which will certainly help support our Junior Band.

A small group from the band were out carolling on Thursday 19th December, in aid of the Rosemere Cancer Foundation. Thank you to everyone who supported us at Franco's, The Derby Arms, Ferrari's (especially the Rotary Club) and Longridge Golf Club. We're pleased to announce that we helped to raise just over £700 for the foundation.
