Three bands in one – Eynesbury & St Neots

Eynesbury & St Neots Brass Band had three incarnations.

The first was certainly active in 1862 and lasted until around 1870.

A successor band was formed in 1875, with its first public concert on Monday 17th April 1876 at the Corn Exchange, St Neots. The conductor at this concert was Mr Embury, and later in 1876 it was Mr Parry, with Mr Ferris taking the baton in 1892.

The third band was founded (or possibly revived) in 1905 and lasted through to WW2. Horace Catmull was the bandmaster in 1932-1938, during which time the band entered a number of contests.
