Lydbrook Band is a championship section band from the heart of the Forest of Dean in the village of Lydbrook on the banks of the River Wye.  Set in a valley, Lydbrook has been described as being  ‘two miles long and two yards wide’.

Formed in 1923 by a group of coal miners, the band’s headquarters are based in Upper Lydbrook, GL17 9LQ, but records show that three bands existed in Lydbrook in the late 1800’s.

Lydbrook Band organises regular tours abroad and has visited South Africa, Zimbabwe, Holland, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Barcelona, Los Alcazares (Spain) and in 2019 Katowice in Poland.
