1st Ibstock Scout Group was formed in 1928 and in 1952 a few of the scouts decided to form a band. Since then the band has been extremely successful and listed below are just a few of their achievements:
• Played for Her Majesty the Queen on two occasions.
• Runners up in the World Marching Band Championships in the 90’s
• 5 times British Youth Band Champions in various divisions.
• Division 2 National Champions in very last Scout & Guide Championships
• Various TV appearances.
• Performed at the London new years day parade.
• Supports various local charities.
• 2010 British Youth Band Division 2 league runners up.
While all the achievements are important, the main objective for the band is to bring together young people. All the band members fall between 10 to 25 years old and live in the Ibstock locality. The commitment needed to reach the high standards required means these young people are extremely dedicated.
