Description

St Dennis Band is extremely proud of its heritage with early records traced to the mid 19th Century, believed to have been formed in 1838 as part of the festivities in connection with the Coronation of Queen Victoria it has continued to function by voluntary contributions up to the present time.

Contest successes include 2nd Section National Champions at Crystal and Alexander Palaces in 1928 and 1938. In the Championship Section they have been eleven times The West of England Champions, and gained sixth place in The Royal Albert Hall at the 1978 National Finals. During the sixties the Band played at the British Open Contest at Belle Vue on three occasions. At The West of England Bandsmens Festival (Bugle) they have been The Royal Trophy winners on 29 occasions including five hat tricks.

The Band has experienced highs and lows during its existence and following a decline in the mid 1990’s showed the determination that has always been present, concentrating their efforts on Youth which paid dividends, progressing from a group of young inexperienced players to the mature Band of the present day.

The Band has qualified for the National finals five times in the last decade rapidly moving up through the sections where they have now established themselves in the Championship Section
