The band currently compete in the Third Section. Arbroath Instrumental Band is a member of the the Northern Counties Brass Band Association. The band, under it’s musical director Audrey Bird were awarded 2nd place in the Scottish Championships in Perth in 2022. This means the band qualifies for the British Championships in Cheltenham in September. This will require a huge fund raising campaign and we are happy to hear from anyone willing to sponsor us or give a donation.
