It is with a very deep sadness that

The Houghton Weavers must announce
the passing of our much loved lead singer, Tony Berry.

Tony passed away peacefully on Thursday evening, 13th June, at home with his family, following a prolonged illness.

Tony was a wonderfully talented, thoughtful and kind person who touched the lives and hearts of so many over a lifetime of dedication to show business.

Tony will be very sadly missed but will remain eternally in our hearts and thoughts.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Tony's family at this difficult time.

God Bless Tony, 
Rest in Peace. 
from all your band mates and loving fans.

Wigston Brass Band In Concert - Friday 6th December 8.00 pm

he history of The Wigston Band can be traced back to the nineteenth century, when it was originally founded as 'The Wesleyan Mission Band'. In 1902, the band changed its name to 'The Wigston Temperance Band' and again in the 1980s, dropping the word ‘Temperance’, many believe due to the drinking habits of its members!

Since then The Wigston Band Organisation has gone from strength to strength, now including three bands. The Horizon Band is for our very beginners where we provide instruments, quality teaching and encouragement to our younger players who are just starting out. The intermediate band within the organisation is called The Enterprise Band which is for members who have been playing a little longer and for those who enjoy a little more challenge. Both of these bands enjoy performing in the community, especially showing off the progress they have made at charity fundraising events.

Finally, The Wigston Band itself is the senior group within the organisation. Today, the band works hard within the community, performing many concerts and raising money for good causes, as well as teaching youngsters basic musical skills. The senior band enjoys performing and contesting to a high level, especially enjoying a trip to The National Brass Band Championships in 2013.  Currently having a playing strength of around 30 players with ages ranging from thirteen to ‘seventy something’, the band enjoys a mixture of fun, hard work and friendship whilst making wonderful music. All members really enjoy playing within such a family orientated environment as well as going out in public to play a wide range of musical genres, anything from jazz to classical, pop to Christmas carols! We hope you enjoy listening to our efforts here!
