The history of Welbeck Estates Brass Band.
The band was formed in 1979 when Mr. Neil Elliott the Land Agent of The Welbeck Estates Co. Ltd and Mr. William Hawkins, the caretaker both wanted something different on the Estate for the workers and their families.
Lady Anne Bentinck became the President and very kindly allowed the use of her coat of arms as the badge for the Band Jackets. Here is a link to a more in-depth history of the band History of the band on IBEW
