A little history of the band
 
The City of Bradford Brass Band can trace its history back as far as the early twentieth century and the Salt’s Mill Band of Saltaire. What was named the Hammonds Hawley Brass Band in the mid 1990s became Yorkshire Building Society (YBS) Concert Brass. Some of the band’s members joined the Hammond’s family of bands as children in the 1980′s and have played alongside one another for thirty years. In 2009, following the end of its successful alliance with YBS which saw them compete at the lower section National Finals several times, the band struck out in a new direction. Following discussions with Bradford Metropolitan District Council, the band proudly adopted the City’s coat of arms and named themselves the City of Bradford Brass Band. Under this banner the band has flourished,  representing Yorkshire three times at the National finals and taking  its place in the world’s banding elite through promotion to the Yorkshire championship section in January 2015.
 
In March 2017, after just two years competing at Championship level, the band took 3rd place in the Yorkshire Regional Championship, going on to represent the County and the City of Bradford at the very highest level of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain in the Royal Albert Hall.
 
The City of Bradford Brass Band has risen from the 3rd section to win a place on the Albert Hall stage in an unprecedented 6 years.
 
The fight against Polio
 
Poliomyelitis is a highly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5.
 
Most know it as poliovirus. The virus is spread person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can attack the nervous system, and in some instances, lead to paralysis. Although there is no cure, there is a safe and effective vaccine – one which Rotary and our partners have used to immunise over 2.5 billion children worldwide. 
 
Unless we eradicate polio, within 10 years, as many as 200,000 new cases could occur around the world each year. In the past few years, only two countries have reported cases of polio caused by the wild virus, but no youngster anywhere is safe until we’ve vaccinated every child.
