Malvern Hills District Brass Band.
Ambitious 4th section band, providing music to suit all occasions.
Founded in January 1979, Malvern Hills District Brass Band (MHDBB) celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2009 and is now led by Musical Director, Chris License.
The original members came from all over the country, bringing experience from bands such as Hanwell, Mirrlees, Desford and Shirley. The newly formed band began its successful contest history with a third prize win at the Pontin’s Festival (Brean Sands) in Easter 1980 and has competed regularly since then (in the Third and Fourth Sections) to win trophies, shields, certificates and banners for performances at Pontin's, The Wychavon Festival of Brass, Leamington Spa, Coleford, The Whit Friday Marches, Burford and Weston-Super-Mare; as well as the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain.
Qualifying for the National Finals five times, MHDBB has been privileged to perform twice at the Royal Albert Hall, London — most recently in 2000, with Chris Lewis as MD.
With an extensive repertoire the band performs throughout the year and has entertained abroad in Holland, Malta, Germany and France. Carolling at Christmas makes the band especially busy and since 1997 its Christmas Charity Concert at Huntingdon Hall in Worcester has been an important annual event, helping to raise thousands of pounds for other local charities.
Cripplegate Park is located to the west of the city on New Road opposite the County Cricket ground. The park has a diverse range of features, including a formal arrangement of flower beds, shrub rows, annual bedding, mature trees and open space grassed areas, set out in a traditional style.
Children's play area, tennis courts and bowling greens make this park multi-functional; with events held throughout the year for the benefit of local residents and tourists.
The toilets are coin operated and require a 20p piece.
