Tredegar Band Heritage

Pioneering LEader

Tredegar Band - 1946

This picture was taken in Bedwellty Park in the town in 1946. The conductor is Con Buckley whilst a youthful John Childs, the future conductor of the band from 1970 to 1977 can be seen in the front row, third from the left.

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.
