A second section brass band from the hills North of Bolton.
Founded in the winter of 1850, initially as the Eagley Sunday School Band, attached to the Eagley Mills, a group of textile mills sited to the north of Bolton, Lancashire.
Through economic ups and downs, two World Wars and numerous frayed Musical Directors the band survives to this day - although with a few new members!
In addition to the successes on the contest field, the band are now famed for their achievements in the concert hall, their innovative, challenging and exciting programmes proving increasingly popular with audiences everywhere.
Monday & Thursday Evenings between 8 and 9:30
