We are a student-run brass band with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere; there are no auditions and anyone studying in or around Cambridge is welcome. Rehearsals are held every Thursday, 8-10pm, and we perform at least one concert each term, as well as smaller group events such as busking, Christmas dinners, and Oktoberfest.

CUBB are looking forward to another year of succesful Brass Banding and welcoming a new batch of freshers to the Band, as well as defending our title at Unibrass.


6th October 2020

Welcome back everyone to another year in Cambridge, and welcome to those here for the first time!

CUBB is going to have to be a little different in the near future due to the pandemic, but we still expect to have a fantastic year. We won't be able to start rehearsing immediately, but from 29th October we will be rehearsing in the Recital Room at the music faculty on West Road, with a limitation on numbers for safety reasons. More details on this will follow.

Alongside this, we will be organising regular social events - virtual and in person to the extent that is safe. Please do join our mailing list by filling in the form here to stay up to date on our upcoming events.

We hope to see lots of new faces soon!
