The Wardle Anderson brass band was formed in the 1990s, consisting of players from the Wardle Academy Youth Band who, at 19, became too old to play in youth band competitions.
The Anderson name originated from a former Headteacher of Wardle Academy (previously Wardle High School), William Anderson, after he died in 1996. William enabled hundreds of children to learn a brass instrument and the band wouldn’t have existed without him.
In 1997 the band received a National Lottery Grant. This enabled them to buy a brand new set of uniforms and instruments, which allowed them to give their old instruments to people in the community that wanted to learn a brass instrument. This formed the Wardle Community Band who perform regularly at concerts and events.
