Regular Events and Clubs

Hilgay School has strong links with Hilgay Silver Band, through the band's scheme for loaning instruments to learners and assisting with tuition. There is also a Training Band which gives learner musicians a chance to play as a group. Several of its current members attended Hilgay School, where they learned the basics of their instrument.

The band has been active in the village since 1896 and competes nationally in major brass band contests.
