Bolton Public Prize Band - anyone have any information?


Staff member
I have been asked for information about this band, which flourished (at least) in the 1940s and 50s, by the daughter of an ex-member.

The only details I have are that in 1950 the conductor was A Murray, Secretary: Ernie Grimshaw (249 Waterloo Street, Bolton). Another conductor was Jack Higham.

Normal suggestions of local archives/libraries have been followed up, so any other information or ideas would be welcome!
