Welcome to the

Culcheth Military Band Homepage

(a.k.a. the Tall Hat Band)

Founded - 1873

 Philps Park 1913

 

The Culcheth Military Band was founded in 1873 in a small town close to Newton Heath, Manchester and soon became known locally as the Tall Hat Band because they wore tophats when marching. I think this was probably due to the the band members dressing in their "Sunday-best" clothes which at that time would have included a topper.
