Formed in 1911 the Maltby Miners Welfare Band is still going strong after more than 100 years. The band is based in Maltby, a town six miles from Rotherham, South Yorkshire.
We are a very active concert and contest band and over the years have built up a good reputation within the local community. We are active as both a contesting band and a concert band, performing mainly in South Yorkshire and the surrounding counties at Galas and fetes, park bandstands, castles and stately homes, village halls and churches and regularly at the Rotherham Civic Theatre.
At present we are 4thsection Yorkshire Champions and will be representing Yorkshire at the national finals in September. This also means that we will be promoted back into the 3rdsection in 2020! We were last Yorkshire champions (4th) section 1999 and 2009.
Our long serving, now in his 35thyear with the band, Musical Director, Terry Clifford, is a skilled and experienced conductor. His patience and good humour ensure enjoyable rehearsals, whilst his encyclopaedic musical knowledge and skills as a compere mean audience can always expect a well presented and pleasurable concert
