About

Wellington (Telford) Brass Band was officially born in October 2000. Previous incarnations include “Telford Band” and “Dawley Band”. The band has grown over the years helped by sponsorship by Wellington Town Council. The Band plays regularly in and around Telford, appearing at the Remembrance Day Parade in Wellington, the annual Civic Carol Service, and other less formal events such as the switching on of Christmas lights, and carol playing just about anywhere.

The Band has competed annually in the Midland Regional Championships achieving great results particularly between 2005 and 2010 during which time the Band was promoted through the sections and qualifying each year for the National Finals winning the 3rd section in 2008 and gaining promotion to the first section in 2010. The band has been through a period of change and now sits comfortably in the 3rd section.
