About Youlgrave Silver Band

Also known as Pommy Band.
The nickname for the village of Youlgrave is POMMY, based on the lovely tale of this band.
About 150 years ago The village bought the very first instruments to form the new band. The players were so enthusiastic and ecstatic to receive them, that, before they had had the chance to learn to play them, they paraded up and down the village holding them and singing the tunes with a, ‘pom,pom,pom.’ – hence Pommy!
This enthusiasm still remains in the present players, but with more skill!
Youlgrave Silver Band has about 25 enthusiastic players and is available for events throughout the year.

We always welcome new members to this very friendly band.
Tuition and instruments are available.
