Hyde Band History
Hyde Band was founded by Mr H.E. ‘Bert’ Shutler in 1895. He originally played in a Fife and Drum band based in the Gorley area of the New Forest near Fordingbridge.
The band has a long history, which boasts many achievements both on and off the contest stage. Most notably being crowned West of England Regional Champions in the fourth, third, second and first sections, when the band was quickly promoted through the ranks in the 1990s. In 1998, the band was announced Wessex Brass Band Association Champions, under the baton of Mr Peter Wise.
