Black Dyke Band

In 1816, in the Yorkshire village of Queenshead, later to become Queensbury, Mr Peter Wharton founded a brass and reed band. Amongst the players, on French Horn, was John Foster, owner of the John Foster & Son mill in that small village. The life of this band, however, was short lived through declining numbers of players. In 1837 a new band was formed, the Queenshead Band, and in September 1855 John Foster & Son ‘adopted’ the band, acquiring for it a new set of instruments and attracting new members. In addition to this, a room was provided for practising - The Black Dyke Mills Band had been formed.
