Presented by Consett Salvation Army Band
Consett Salvation Army band celebrates its 140th anniversary with the visit of the renowned Black Dyke Band.
The S.A. commenced in Consett during 1878 by two girl evangelists, in the area at the same time there was a tremendous interest in brass bands.
So it was not surprising to find that during the following year Consett S.A. band was formed, this resulted in Consett having the honour of being the first Salvation Army band in the world.
