    The band are to celebrate their 65th Anniversary this June, and are hoping to organise an event to celebrate this.
    Although the band has been in existence longer and known then as the ‘Calverton & Bestwood Colliery Silver Prize Band, split from Calverton to then form 2 new bands in 1945.
    The bands official name change, registration and 1st Contest of which they went on to win was in June 1946.
    The previously named band was still based in the Bestwood Village area since 1896, so in years would be 115 years old, but we are happy to accept 65 for the latest band.
