York Railway Institute Band

York Railway Institute Band was established in 1883 by Noah Bruce. Originally named Chaucer Street Mission Band and later known as York and District Mission and Temperance Band, York Excelsior Brass Band, York Home Guard Band and Ebor Excelsior Silver Band, it took on the name of York Railway Institute Band after allying itself to York Railway Institute in 1952 and, despite having had several name changes and homes, the Band has remained extant and is York's oldest Brass Band.
