Hammonds Band in Concert
Sat 6th April 2024 7:30pm
Making a return to a refurbished Skipton Town Hall, the award-winning Hammonds Band, one of the country’s premiere brass ensembles, was founded in 1855 by Sir Titus Salt as an amenity for the workers at his recently opened mill. The band later had a long association with Hammonds Sauce Works under the baton of the legendary Geoffrey Whitham. It is from these two parts of its past that it derives its current name, Hammonds Band.
Under the direction of Morgan Griffiths, Hammonds Band is now one of the country’s finest brass bands, performing in venues across the world and recently at the French Open.
