As part of our 20th Anniversary Celebrations, we wanted to look at key members of the band and got in touch with a few people to help us. We recently asked Kathryn Rowling, a clarinet player with the group when it was established, to recall her fondest memories of our founder, Aubrey Beswick. I played for […]
Today, 3rd September 2018, marks twenty years since Aubrey Beswick first decided to set up this group. Thank you to everyone who has been a member of the band since 1998 – without the time you have given us, however long or short that may have been, the Morley And District Concert Band wouldn’t still […]
We are pleased to announce our rehearsal dates from September 2018 for what will be our 20th year as a group. If you are interested in joining the band, please get in touch. All rehearsal times begin at 7pm, but we generally commence playing at 7:30pm due to the need to set the room up. Autumn […]

We would like to thank them for their […]
For a long while now, this site has been a showcase for the events and performances of the band. We have taken some time to refresh the look of the site today as well as update some details of our players – this still needs some work, but we didn’t want to be offline for […]
We would like to pass on our congratulations to our Tuba player Cameron and his wife Caroline. They welcomed Matilda Thea Black into the world on 4th October after finally making a late appearance weighing a healthy 8lb 7oz. We wish them all the best for their future!

We had a slightly altered band, with our usual conductor on drums at the back as our usual percussionist was otherwise engaged. This meant that Aaron Campbell, who […]
