Milnrow Band


The Milnrow Band is a top class group of amateur musicians promoted to the highest ranked Championship section of Great Britain in 2006.


With our roots firmly planted in the village of its humble beginnings over 150 years ago we are an active and progressive group of professional adults and aspiring academics – aged between 17 – 55 years of age.


Whilst our concert and competition engagements see the band travelling both locally and nationally the village and community are still very strongly supported by the band in our attendance at annual events such as Remembrance Sunday and Carnivals and church walks. We can often be seen on

the streets carolling on Christmas morning!


Milnrow Band has no corporate sponsorship and relies heavily on the engagements we attend and the support of locals and business alike.


Our musical repertoire is wide and varied which enables us to perform rousing concerts, small 10 piece accompaniments at events through to live wedding music. Read more.......
