Cory Band

Sun 23 June 3pm, 2019

The Cory Band hails from the Rhondda Valley in South Wales. It was formed in 1884 when it was called the Ton Temperance Band, and in 1895, after hearing the band playing at the opening of Gelli Library, coal baron Sir Clifford Cory was so impressed that he offered to finance the band’s first ever professional conductor, and the band became known as the Cory Band. It rose through the sections and in 1920 gained Championship Section status, enabling it to build its reputation and lay the foundation stones of its future contesting dominance.

Corey is one of an elite group of bands that have achieved the ‘Grand Slam’ by winning the European Championships, British Open Championships, National Brass Band Championships and Brass in Concert in the same calendar year.
