Grimsdyke Brass is Harrow's premier brass band, and current champions
of the London and Southern Counties region in the Second section and will contest in the 1st section in 2018.
Formed in 1979, the name 'Grimsdyke' is taken from a prehistoric or
Saxon earthwork which runs across Harrow Weald Common. Echoes of the
names of other successful British brass bands are purely coincidental!
Grimsdyke Brass is well known across North West London and further
afield for its engaging and entertaining concert performances. With a
broad repertoire including film music, jazz, big band standards and,
of course, the best brass band classics, Grimsdyke has a concert
programme for any occasion. A regular at the Harrow Arts Centre for
their summer and Christmas concerts, Grimsdyke Brass also performs
throughout the year both in a formal concert setting and at more
informal outdoor events such as community events and in park
bandstands. The band is also keenly aware of its responsibility to
share the love of music with a new generation, with dedicated 'Kids
concerts' in both 2013 and 2014 in conjunction with the Harrow and
Brent music services respectively.
