Meet The Band

Meltham and Meltham Mills Team

Meltham and Meltham Mills is a close knit and family of a brass band welcoming to all who share in the passion for creating and enjoying great music. We rehearse twice a week on a Monday and Thursday, with rehearsals from 7:45pm to 9:30pm. Rehearsals are held in our band-room in Meltham, Holmfirth which has been our home since 1846 and owned by the band.
