Annan Town Band

Annan Town Band was formed in 1901 (named The Lower Annandale Band in 1834 and Multitubular Brass Band in 1900) and celebrated its 100th birthday in 2001, making it the oldest musical group in Annan.

The band is under the musical direction of Peter Heyes and are currently competing in the 2nd section in Scotland. They play a range of concerts and contests throughout the year.


Practices are held in the band clubhouse, Blue Bell Inn, and rehearse on a Monday and Wednesday from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.


The youth/training band relaunched in January 2015 and rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 6.15pm to 7.15pm in the band room. The band have also recently received a generous donation solely for youth development.


The band welcome brass and percussion players of all ages and abilities. .
