About the Band

The Spen Valley Scout and Guide band are made up of Scouts and Guides from the Spen Valley district in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire. We are one of the few remaining Scout & Guide Bands in Yorkshire.

We are a Marching Band made up of Woodwind and Brass instruments as well as Tuned Percussion and Drums.

We play and march in a Traditional Military Style and play a whole range of different types of music, we are also active members of TYMBA (The Traditional Youth Marching Bands Association)

Over the years we have played for the Queen at Windsor Castle, performed alongside Mickey Mouse at Disneyland Paris, marched in the Calgary Stampede parade in Canada and played in front of thousands of scouts from around the world at the Scout Jamboree.

The band plays annually in the Birmingham International Tattoo, at the National Indoor Arena and attends a summer camp where they are instructed by HM Royal Marines.

Other events include camps, bowling, ice skating and many more fun activities.
