Welcome

Shepley Band is a self-funded wind band based near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. Our enthusiastic members range in age from the youngish to the young at heart, are from a wide background of musical experiences, and enjoy coming together at weekly rehearsals and regular engagements to play a varied selection of music. Please take a look round our website to find out more about us.

 

The earliest known record of a Shepley Band is from the Huddersfield Chronicle in 1854. The band has reinvented itself many times since then, most notably in 1995 when the then brass band opened membership to woodwind players. The band has subsequently enjoyed three fantastic trips to Sweden, Italy and Germany.

More recently, we have played in many bandstands around Yorkshire in the summers and contributed to many local Christmas carol singalongs.

Now, under the baton of Tricia Moores, we are enthusiastically embracing the next chapter of our exciting musical story. We are aiming to increase numbers and play a vibrant part in local life.
