From The Bandroom, March 24th, Crofron Silver Band


Staff member

In “From The Bandroom” this month we’re just down the road in Fitzwilliam, at the Church Of The Resurrection, the home of Crofton Silver Band.

Starting life back in the 1870s, the band have led a nomadic existence, and also spent thirty years as the Nostell Colliery Band before reverting to their original name when the pit closed. About 20 years ago, presenter, Andrew Fake, used to conduct their learners’ band, which, in its latest incarnation, Crofton Silver Bandits, continues to train the next generation of players.

The band have had an incredible run of contest success since Musical Director Dean Jones took over in 2015. Then in the third section, the band have worked their way up and joined the Yorkshire championship section at the start of this year.

Join us to be entertained by the Crofton Silver Band and to hear their story.

From The Bandroom with the Crofton Silver Band, 10pm, Tuesday 24th March on East Leeds FM.
