Welcome to the Vale of Glamorgan Brass Band website. Originally established in 1974 the band has been performing in the Vale and surrounding areas for over 40 years. Located in the sea-side town of Barry, the band is fortunate to have the support of Barry Athletic Club and we rehearse weekly in our own practice room at their facilities on Barry Island.
