Tongwynlais Temperance Band boasts some of Wales’ finest musicians who are enthused to pass on their skills, passion and knowledge to the next generation. For five years in succession, the band has ranked as one of the UK’s top-20 brass bands, each year successfully qualifying for the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall. In 2014, the band reached the final of the acclaimed Band Cymru competition on S4C and, for the last eight years, gained a podium-place finish at the Welsh Open Entertainment Contest.


In addition, there is the opportunity to join the band’s brand new youth ensemble with a weekly rehearsal and regular public performances (standard: grade 3 & below). Our ensemble plays a wide variety of music, often arranged specifically for the ensemble and tailored to its members’ abilities. There is always the opportunity for our members to request pieces they’d like to play – anything from film scores to pop songs or classics! We rehearse on Sundays at 5pm for one hour, with a termly fee of £30.00.
