There has been a village band in Tideswell for over 120 years, as we believe the band was formed in 1886. The first photos of the band date from around 1891 which show the band taking part in the Annual village Carnival Parade-an event that continues to the present day on the last Saturday of June.
The band is proud of its history, and has given the village of Tideswell and the surrounding villages and hamlets many years of entertainment and pleasure with its concerts and activities that take place every year. The band has a big part to play in such events as the Remembrance Day service, Summer Carnival and Wakes Week, Santa’s Parade, the Bonfire night celebrations, and numerous concerts in and around the parish villages and beyond.
The band rehearses every Monday and Friday evening at The Youth Club Building in Tideswell, and welcomes anyone who would like to come and join them. Contact Simon Lewis on 07762 797595 or Libs Slattery on 07748 987503 for more information. We are also delighted to renew our relationship with Tideswell Church, where we have recorded (with Cressbrook and Bakewell Bands) our Christmas CD and enjoyed rehearsals.
