Christchurch and Highclffe Band

Christchurch and Highcliffe Brass Band have existed under different names since 1907 due to changes in rehearsal bases. The band started life as the Highcliffe Silver Band when they rehearsed in the Highcliffe Library building later becoming Highcliffe British Legion Silver Band until the British Legion Club was demolished for housing development. Having been offered a room in the Highcliffe Sports and Social Club the band name changed accordingly again. Some six years ago the Band moved to the Highcliffe Youth Club and this became their new rehearsal base. At this time the Christchurch Council offered to support the Band, and it took on the present name of Christchurch and Highcliffe Band.
