Whitworth & Healey Band

Return to list of services

Information on this page was last updated on 01/10/2017

The main band of Whitworth Vale and Healey compete on a regular basis in various Local and National competitions and perform at concerts all year in and around the local area.

Whitworth Vale and Healey also have a youth band dedicated to get children to learn and enjoy playing brass band music.  The youth band rehearse weekly and perform in concerts all year round.

The band came into being due to the amalgamation of the former Whitworth Vale and the Healey Hall Bands.  It is doubtful if more than a few records exist of either band prior to amalgamation but as far as we can tell, Whitworth Band was founded in 1853 and is one of the oldest Brass Bands in the country.
