Scope and content

Bampton had a brass band in the very early days of the twentieth century. The picture of them playing outside the Town Hall, taken in 1908 was kindly lent to the Archive by Barbara Daw.

At that time the arches of the Town Hall were bricked up as the space below was no longer used as a market place, rather somewhere for the layabouts to gather.

The second picture of the band in a garden with the gentleman on the left wearing a wide sash was lent to us by Frank Hudson.. Mr Taunt was asked to be the conductor of the band by the players themselves; was the organist at St Mary's in Bampton.

The third picture shows the band along with their conductor Henry Taunt

The fourth picture shows the band leading the Foresters out of the church after their annual Foresters' Day service and it was the first time they'd done that.

The fifth picture shows the front cover of a concert program for Dec 17th 1902 and the concert was to raise funds for the band.
