accessible by all who are interested in music 

Drum and Brass is a social enterprise and an arts organisation.

Our mission is to use the arts to bring communities together. We devise and manage projects and we work with a variety of partners and funders to achieve our aims. We collaborate with other arts groups to create new and unique works. Using all our creative skills and experience, we also arrange bespoke events in music, dance, performance and the visual arts. We can deliver workshops, parties and courses for individuals and groups.

Looking to apply for funding for your new project?

Speak to us and we can help plan your new project and bring it to life from applying for funding to helping to completion.

bringing the brass community together

Brass of the Saff

In January 2019 we took delivery of our 60 instruments. Right away we took them to the band and gave them to our players. We now allow parents to join the band and learn and Sir Peter Soulsby, the Mayor had a go when he visited the band at our Band Camp. With our spare instruments we run taster sessions for other community groups.

exloring the world through sights, sounds and musical textures

Mini Music

Run by Kim Burley-Jones who is one of our directors at D+B. We have always created projects that have team work, skill sharing, inclusivity and creating a safe environment to express yourself and lead to working confidence in working independently.

As well as working with local communities in Leicester, D+B have worked with many organisations and individuals around the UK to collaborate and elevate their practices.

There are many opportunities to get involved with us to volunteer, partner up with projects or just have a nice chat about your own practice and how we can help. The whole team is very approachable and all have a range of skills that they can share with you.
