MELTHAM and MELTHAM MILLS JUNIOR AND TRAINING BAND
Junior and Training Band at 2016 170th Anniversary Concert
Just over three years ago the Junior Band was reborn with just 3 players, and we now have 16 established young players performing regularly. Following a resurgence of interest from prospective new starters we then formed a Training Band which now boasts 11 less experienced young players, swelling our combined numbers to around 26 young local musicians.
Our successful recruiting policy was founded on taking our young players to perform for local school activities in the village, and due to the demand for further new instruments we have been excellently supported with many grants from several organisations to whom we are all extremely grateful.
Both bands rehearse on Tuesdays between 6:00pm and 7.30pm in our bandroom headquarters in Meltham and we are always pleased to welcome more new players.
