About Us

Glossop Old Band are believed to have been originally formed around 1830.

Following a 5 year break from the contesting arena, the band competed in the 2nd section of the Midlands regional championships in March 2016 and qualified for the National Finals.

The band are growing in strength each week and are re-establishing links with the local community.  We have also re-established the Bandroom Sunday concerts, however we've opted for an afternoon slot to hopefully grow the audience base - young and old.

We are always looking for support, whether playing or non-playing.  Please explore the website and facebook page to find out ways to get involved.  Or contact us.

Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings 8.00-10.00pm.

We also have a Learner Band, who rehearse on Sunday 10.00-11.30am.  Please contact Marcus Jones on 07973852051 for more details.
