Indian Queens Band is an important part of the Indian Queens area's traditions and musical heritage. It was founded in the mid 19th century and has a proud and unbroken record of bringing enjoyment to communities the length and breadth of Cornwall.
Over the year there have been many highlights in the history of the band. These include winning the 'B' section at Bugle Band Contest eleven times and competing at Crystal Palace in 1929, when it came eighth out of twenty-three bands. I November 1937, it was also the first band to be broadcast on the radio. In the late 1980s the band had a run of success which saw it gain entry into the London National Finals three years running and into the Pontin's Finals in North Wales twice.
Indian Queens Band serves the communities of Indian Queens, Fraddon, St Column and Summercourt. No function is complete without the band being in attendance. The band performs at local fetes, chapels and gardens. As well as events in St. Enoder Parish, the band performs at events throughout Cornwall.
We rehearse every Tuesday evening between 7.30pm til 9pm
