The Hepworth band is a village brass band located close to the town of Holmfirth in the Holme Valley of West Yorkshire. Formed in 1882 the band has been in existence for over 137 years.
The band represents the village of Hepworth and the Yorkshire region in competitions, festivals and concerts across the Country. As a Championship Section band we compete at the highest level against such famous names as Black Dyke, Brighouse & Rastrick and Grimethorpe Colliery, in fact for a ‘village band’ we compete remarkably successfully having maintained our Championship status for over 20 years, qualified to represent Yorkshire at the finals of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain at the Royal Albert Hall on three occasions and achieved notable success on the contesting circuit.
As well as the bands impressive contesting record, it is equally at home on the concert stage where it has gained a reputation for presenting varied, exciting and polished performances.
