Heyl Town Band are based in the town of Hayle in West Cornwall, which sits on the River Hayle near St Ives Bay. The band takes its name from the Cornish word for estuary.
The band is made up of a Junior and a Senior Band, allowing both new and more experienced brass players to be part of our heritage.
Like many parts of the UK, Brass Band have always been a key part of the community, allowing people to get together and enjoy this traditional form of music and passing something on to the newest members, allowing the tradition to continue from generation to generation. Here at Heyl, we have several generations of some familes, playing together to our community.
