Third Carrickfergus Band
Formed in 1958 and situated in the historic coastal town of Carrickfergus, the Third Carrickfergus Band is a busy Championship Section band which not only is in great demand throughout the year giving concerts at many venues in Northern Ireland and beyond but also competes in various annual contests.
A Championship Section Brass Band from Carrickfergus
A fter a long and successful history the band returned to the Championship Section in 2017 and have endeavoured to keep the fun in both the music played and in the rehearsals. Playing at local events and competing in various contests home and away keeps us busy.
The future success of the Third Carrickfergus Band relies heavily on the Youth band, the training ground for the musicians of tomorrow. Thankfully, we have a supply of talent coming through the ranks in order to ensure that the youth members talents are encouraged and hopefully inspire them to aim towards integrating into the senior band.

Buy a Brick!
As part of our fundraising to replay the loan required for the purchase of our new hall, the Band is introducing the ‘Buy-a-Brick’ campaign. Each full brick costs £500 and the Band would like to sell at least 80 of these. Each brick can be broken up into smaller pieces or you can buy more than one to make a bigger part of the wall.
Can you help? – Please contact us if you can.
All contributors will be officially recognised on our Roll of Honour and displayed prominently on our website and social media pages. Any assistance you can give the Band will be greatly appreciated.
