Founded in 1866 Water Band has been serving the village of Water and the Rossendale Valley for 150 years. Our Bandroom is situated on Burnley Road East, next to Lumb Baptist Church.  Free tuition is offered to anyone who would like to learn to play and age is no barrier!

The band funds itself through a series of concerts and other fundraising activities.

Each year we undertake many different type of events, including marches and church processions, indoor and outdoor concerts and at Christmas we play Christmas carols in the local supermarkets and around the streets of Water and Lumb. We have also raised money for local charities including The Parkinson’s Society, the Tickled Pink breast cancer awareness charity, and a charity for the blind and partially sighted.

Our proudest achievement of recent years was being asked to play for the televised Olympic Torch relay as it came through Burnley in 2012.

The band is made up of a good cross section of age and ability with ages ranging from 7 through to 80. We are a friendly group of people who enjoy making music and welcome any new players who would like to join us.
