Pilling Jubilee Silver Band

Band History

There has been a band in Pilling since 1875, first a pipe and drum band and then Pilling Brass Band. In 1935 the 'Junior' section of the band split off and formed the Pilling Jubilee Silver Band, the name taken from their first engagement on May 6th 1935, their Majesty's Silver Jubilee.

1987 saw the opening of the new, purpose-built bandroom which provided the best facilities the band could wish for. Since then, the band has gone from strength to strength, with the band receiving a grant from the National Lottery Arts Council which provided funds to purchase nine new instruments and help to re-surface the Bandroom car park.

In 2013, we qualified for the Brass Band National Championships for the first time in the band's history. Playing as one of the North West's representatives, we gained an excellent 5th place.

In August 2015 after a series of fundraising efforts, the road to the bandroom was properly surfaced for the first time and the band car park was extended.
