Llwydcoed Brass Band are a Brass Band based in Llwydcoed, a small village north of Aberdare, South Wales.

 We have had a very successful few years of competition in banding which has seen us rise through the sections to Championship Section status locally and nationally from 2015. 

Llwydcoed Band are pleased to announce that we have recently secured Charitable Status (Reg No: 1190667). This will help increase the bands fund raising capabilities and will put the band on a firmer footing going forward.

We will shortly be re-launching our Patrons Scheme – anyone interested in joining should contact the band email: llwydcoedband@hotmail.com. For a annual donation of £20, not only will you be helping secure the long-term future of the only remaining Brass Band in the Cynon Valley, but you will also receive 1 Free Ticket to our Annual Summer Concert, regular updates on the bands activities/successes, and the opportunity to attend a rehearsal as the band prepares for any major contest.

Take a look at our Distance Banding Video with Dame Evelyn Glennie:
