Farnworth & Walkden Band

We love Brass Band Music


The Band

Farnworth & Walkden Band are a friendly North-West band graded 3rd Section. Throughout the year we are busy with many concerts and contests. We rehearse on Monday 8:00PM-9:45PM in our own Bandroom (map link).

FARNWORTH BAND had its origins in 1848 and WALKDEN BAND can trace its origins from around the 1850's. The Walkden and Eatons Farnworth bands merged in 2005, firstly to become Eaton Farnworth and Walkden Band and later becoming Farnworth & Walkden Band with the closure of Eatons Transmissions factory in 2007.
