Tredegar Band - 2008

With the return of former principal cornet player Ian Porthouse as Musical Director at the end of 2007, the band embarked upon it most successful period of contesting and artistic success in its history.

This picture was taken in front of Bedwellty Park bandstand in July 2008 and shows the trophies won in that year - including the Welsh Regional Challenge Trophy (right) and the Welsh Open (centre). The trophy to the right was presented to Ian Porthouse as the winning conductor at the Welsh Regional Championships.

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.
