The award-winning band, one of the country’s premier brass ensembles, will play their now-traditional New Year concerts on Saturday January 8 at 7.30pm and Sunday January 9 at 3pm.

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.
