Hilgay Silver Band was founded in 1896. Originally formed by farmers and land workers from the village and surrounding areas, the band has improved over the years and has now become one of Norfolk's premier bands.
It competes each year at the East Anglian Spring Festival and at the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain, and has performed at Wembley Conference Centre and at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham.
Rehearsals are held on Monday and Thursday evenings between 7.30pm - 9.30pm. The band welcomes new players of all standards and ages whatever your favoured instrument. Enquiries, applications to join the band and booking requests should be made to the Secretary.
