22 years after the first plans were drawn up the new bandroom was opened in June 2007 by the president Mr Edgar Dickinson MBE accompanied by vice-president Mr. Philip Wright and Mrs B. Wright. Edgar was honoured with the MBE in recognition of his services to charities and the community, an honour richly deserved.
The Edgar Dickinson Building is a purpose built bandroom with three training or individual practice rooms, kitchen, music library, percussion room, large rehearsal area and integral trailer garage with loading bay. It is a truly magnificent venue that the band is very proud of and it is an excellent addition to the community’s amenities. Other local bands and Kirklees Music School have also been able to make use of the fantastic facilities.
The Bandroom is available for hire from as little as £10/ £12 per hour and suits a variety of activities. For more information please contact Robert Turnbull on 01484 361671 or send a message through our contact page.
