The history of The Wigston Brass Band can be traced back to the late nineteenth century, when it was originally founded as ‘The Wesleyan Mission Band’. In 1902, the band changed its name to ‘The Wigston Temperance Band’ under the baton of a local musical shop owner, Charlie Moore. Charlie continued to conduct the band throughout a significant period of the band’s development, which included many appearances at some of the country’s most prestigious venues including The Crystal Palace and Belle Vue Halls in Manchester.  In the 1950s Charlie passed the baton to his son Ted, who continued the family tradition by taking the band to many contests including the National Finals on several occasions.  You can see some of the early success the band enjoyed in the results table below.
