Welcome to the website of one of the oldest brass bands in the world!

Old picture of band

Woodhouse Prize Band is a traditional brass band on the south side of Sheffield in the UK about two miles from junction 31 on the M1.

Founded in 1853, we are one of the oldest surviving brass bands in the country in continuous existence and we’re incredibly proud of our heritage. We don’t spend all our time looking backwards though. For a local village band, we think we’re quite progressive with our music and our outlook.
