Ebony Steel band is Europe’s leading steel band and one of the first steel bands set up in the UK.  

The band was founded in 1969 by a group of dedicated Caribbean and British men and women who shared a love of steel bands and steelpan music and wanted to promote steelpan music across the UK and Europe.

 Ebony has won the National Panorama competition at Notting Hill Carnival, for a record 22 times, eleven times in succession!

In 2005 Ebony was awarded the Queen’s Award for serving the community for over 18 years.

Ebony also delivers a variety of artistic activities and a full range of workshops for people of all ages.
