Hepworth is a Championship Section band competing in the Yorkshire Area, this means that we compete against some of the best known names in the banding world—Black Dyke, Brighouse & Rastrick and Grimethorpe along with many other top quality brass bands.
We are proud to have represented Yorkshire and the Holme Valley at the finals of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain at the Royal Albert Hall in 2007, 2009 and 2011, and the band has firmly established itself over the past ten years as one of the very best bands in the country, currently ranked in the top 20 bands in the “World of Brass” rankings and appearing regularly in concerts, festivals and on radio. In order to achieve this it has taken a lot of hard work by many individuals over the band’s 130-year history.
The band now attracts players not only from the Holmfirth and Huddersfield area but from all over the north of England. Like many organisations we rely on sponsorship, our subscribers, the proceeds from concerts and events and our own fundraising efforts to balance the books.
Whilst the band plays concerts all over the north of England, it also plays either free of charge or for expenses only at charitable events and supports local events such as the Service of Remembrance at Christ Church, New Mill; Hepworth Feast, and playing at Christmas around the local villages.
Formed in 1882, the band was for many years a subscription band with players, officials and people locally making donations towards the running costs. The Band has revived this idea with the launch of its Subscription Scheme and we ask whether you would consider supporting the band by becoming a subscriber?
For an annual subscription of £25 as a “membership subscriber” we will provide you with: A quarterly newsletter to keep you up to date with everything that is happening regarding the band, plus a complimentary ticket to one of the concerts in the band’s annual series.
For an annual subscription of £50 as a “partnership subscriber” we will provide you with: All of the above together with complimentary tickets to all concerts in the band’s annual series.
By becoming a subscriber you will have the knowledge that your contribution is going towards maintaining the very high standard of brass band music making in this area and ensuring that the 130‑year tradition is maintained long into the future
