The band was founded in 1855 as the Saltaire Band by Sir Titus Salt as one of the amenities for the workers at his recently opened mill. Later the band had a long association with Hammonds Sauce
Works under the baton of the legendary Geoffrey Whitham. Now with Morgan Griffiths as Musical Director, the band performs as Hammonds Saltaire; celebrating both important eras in the band’s
history. The band is the holder of the Grand Shield 2018, taking the title with a performance showing “an impressive mix of the essential contesting attributes of excellent preparation, intelligent conducting and confident execution”.
