Oughtibridge Band History
The region of Oughtibridge has supported some sort of music making group for well over 100 years. The Band in its current state was formed in 1890. Throughout its history, the Band has supported local events such as Church Parades, Galas, Carol Concerts etc as well as taking the village name far and wide with their tours, engagements and contest performances.
The band is a competing band engaged in local and national brass bands contests. From 1960 to 1979, the band won 23 trophies. In more recent times the Band played in London (including at the Albert Hall) in the National Championships three times between 1980 and 1990, and in the 3rd Section National Finals in Torquay in 2002. After a period of re-building, the band pulled themselves up from the bottom of the 4th section to qualification to the National Championships of Great Britain and promotion to the 3rd section.
