The Band was formed in 1900 and over the years has performed under several different names, including Sheffield Recreation Band, Stocksbridge Band, and City of Sheffield Band. They are famous for appearing in the blockbuster ‘The Full Monty’

Sheffield Citadel Band of the Salvation Army Band Master Keith Wileman said:

“It’s a fantastic way for us to celebrate in the heart of the community we serve and having the Unite the Union band join us will really add to the variety of music as well as sense of community on the night. Music is an important part of how The Salvation Army celebrates and a 135 anniversary is certainly a fantastic opportunity to do so. We will also be welcoming many former band members joining us at the event.”

Tickets can be purchased for £5 from The Salvation Army Hall on Psalter Lane.
