We are pleased to welcome back to our series the 2019 Welsh Champion, Tredegar Town Band. The musical origins of the band can be traced back to 1849 when a band from the Welsh valley town was reported to have led a procession to celebrate the opening of a new mill for the Tredegar Iron and Coal Company. A long running partnership with Ian Porthouse as Musical Director has led to many diverse performances including providing the music to the BAFTA Award-winning film Pride and performing with Tim Minchin at the Old Vic Theatre’s 200th Anniversary Ball.

This concert is part of the Leeds Best of Brass 2019/20 series. 

Read an interview with Principal Cornet of the Tredegar Town Band, Dewi Griffiths.
