Florence Brass

The band has been in existence since the 1920s when it was formed between the wars as Bucknall Ex Servicemens Band. The band later became known as the Home Guard Band.

For many years the band played as the Special Constabulary Band / Staffordshire Police Band.

In 2001 it became apparent that the band needed to be self financing, and at this time Florence Sports and Social Club came forward and "adopted" the band - hence we became Florence Brass
