2008 was a year to remember at Hade Edge – the band celebrating 100 years of banding based in the village. The band celebrated their 100 years of existence with a concert in Huddersfield Town Hall in July of that year. The concert was a “free” concert for all, and of course as expected the Town Hall was full.
The audience were entertained by not only the Senior Band whose birthday it truly was, but the Training band, Junior band, Jazz band and Community Choir along with our guest soloist for the evening – David Childs- euphonium player with Cory Band. A commemorative programme was produced and a Senior Band CD produced called Up the Old Stone Steps a reference to the old band room entrance.
