History

Over 119 years of performing

The Castletown Metropolitan Silver Band has been in existence since 1896, and in fact actually existed prior to this under a different name. There is much historical information available, which can be obtained from the Secretary. Two amusing booklets, outlining the early days of the band, have been produced by the late Dennis Spooner and can also be obtained from the Secretary at £6 per set, inclusive of postage.

 

Historic Photographs

We are fortunate that former player, Ian Pilbeam, has spent time digitising a number of photographs from the bandroom. These include photographs of some of the previous musical directors, as well as photographs taken at events dating back to the 1890’s.

 

Unfortunately we don’t have all the details about some of these and would be grateful if anyone can assist, by telling us either where they were taken or helping us identify some of the players. If you can help, please contact the Secretary.
