Godalming Band

Brass band in Godalming since 1937

And the band played on... a history of Godalming Band

In 2010, Godalming Museum hosted a fascinating exhibition of the history of our very own Godalming Band. Many months of painstaking research and preparation went into it, with many interviews of past and current members, supporters and friends of the band to uncover the stories and characters that lined its history.

In the following web pages, we reproduce the work of the exhibition and hope to add to it in the years to come. Many thanks to everybody involved in the project for bringing all of this information together.

If you have any comments to add, or wish to correct any of the information, we would love to hear from you. If you would like to lend us any photographs or memorabilia, we would be most grateful as our history is still building.

Please click any of the links below to jump to that section. Links at the bottom of each page will take you forward and back through sections, or back to this index.
