‘One of the oldest cultural organisations in the town and was established late in the 1890's when it was known as the Blaenavon Town Silver Band. It then became supported by the local colliery, Big Pit and through subscription it was known as the Blaenavon Colliery Workmen's Band until the pit closed in the early 1980's and is now known as the Blaenavon Town Band. The Band provides a performing platform for local brass musicians, performing on the concert and contest stage both locally and nationally. To help secure its future the band supports a thriving Youth section which also makes regular concerts and contest appearances.’ ALERT Website not available at Review; referenced Facebook Page instead.
