Swindon Pegasus Brass Band

Swindon Pegasus Brass Band is the oldest established musical organisation in Swindon, tracing its heritage back to the early 1900s. In 1973 the Band appeared at the Championship Section National Finals of Great Britain held at the Royal Albert Hall finishing in 9th position, at that time being the highest position ever for a Wiltshire Band. In recent times the Band were the 1995 West of England 1st Section Champions qualifying for the National Finals, and in 2013 won the 2nd Section West of England, taking 3rd prize in the National Finals…
