Tredegar Band - 1991

As 1990 Champion Band of Wales, Tredegar represented the nation at the 1991 European Championships held in Rotterdam in April 1991.

Under the baton of Nigel Weeks they produced two exceptional performances of the set-work, 'A London Overture' and their own-choice selection of 'The Essence of Time' to come third overall behind eventual winners Black Dyke Mills and BBS Foden's.

The image was taken by photographer Gerard Stobroek during the band's performance on Saturday 27th April at the De Doelen Hall.

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.
