Tredegar Band Heritage

Pioneering LEader

Tredegar Band - 2003

The band won the Champion Band of Wales title in 2002 following a series of four contest throughout the year against domestic opposition.

This image was taken before the band performed in a concert in Newtown in mid-Wales in October 2003 - just after they had come runner-up at the National Championships of Great Britain at the Royal Albert Hall. The guest conductor for the concert that night (not in image), which included a reprise performance of Elgar's 'Enigma Variations' which they had performed in London was Melvin White.

The aim of this Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) supported project is to provide an on-line multi-media resource that will celebrate and interpret the historical importance of the social, cultural and musical achievements of Tredegar Town Band over a time-line of the past 170 years – from the earliest reported origins in 1849 to date.
