    30 years ago, a small group of brass players created a new band. The first practice was held in a kitchen in Waterbeach on 13th April 1978. Within a few years the band was thirty strong, had fifteen juniors and had qualified for the nationals in London.
    Since that time, the Band has become one of Cambridge's premier brass bands. The Band was crowned Cambridgeshire Champion Band in 1991 and was conferred as Ely Riverside Entertainment Champion in 2000. In 2004, Waterbeach Brass took first place in the fourth section of the London & Southern Counties Region of the National Brass Band Championships held in Stevenage. In 2007 the band was promoted to the third section and are now well placed towards the top of this section.
    Since the band's inception, it has encouraged youngsters to join the brass band fraternity, and until recently ran its own junior band but now supports local specialist youth bands.
    Waterbeach Brass rehearses on Monday evenings in Waterbeach. More details can be found on the band’s website www.waterbeachbrass.org
