Description

Rode Hall Silver Band was formed in 1837 as a fife and drum band, changing to its current brass band format in 1886. It is believed that the Band was originally formed to lead the local people to services at Astbury Church before Rode Church was built.

Band activity was suspended for the duration of the Second World War. In 1946 a meeting was held at the Bleeding Wolf pub between Messrs. Tim Williamson, Bill Roberts and Albert Pierpoint when it was decided to try to reform the band. All the pre-War players were contacted and invited to meet at the British Legion room in Scholar Green, where the Band has practiced ever since.

The band today plays at many events throughout South Cheshire and Staffordshire as well as entering contests that will challenge the players and develop its sound.

The band recently achieved a 1st place finish at the Wychavon Festival of Brass 2017 and 5th place at the 2018 North West Regional Brass Band Championships. The band is forward thinking and aims to progress further and further up the results table in the months and years to come.

The band rehearse on a Thursday night between 7.30pm and 9.30pm at our band room in Scholar Green. New and old players are always welcome!
