    How many bands have folded recently and how many have started up?
    I'm doing some research into the British brass bands current status.
    Does anyone know how many bands there currently are? and which bands have recently folded and when would be really useful.

    Been on this site myself for a bit of research - it's crackin' and was a bit of a trip down memory lane... :D

    The Biggest loss recently in South Wales was Mid Rhondda. Their Web site says: "Due to loss of players mid Rhondda band will not be competing in the foreseeable future and are in the process of rebuilding the band".
    On the other hand, Corus (Port Talbot) have gone from about 6 players last year, too a full band. That includes 3 excellent percussion.
