The band was formed in 1899 under the name of Creswell Colliery and District Band. Rehearsals were held in the Colliery Office until the Miners Welfare building was built in Model Village in 1908. From then on the band went from strength to strength winning competitions both nationally and internationally.
In 1901 the band came 2nd in the Worksop Band Competition. This was the first of many competition successes including winning the 1925 British Open Championship competition in Manchester and becoming World Champions of the Trombone Quartet competition in 1945.
Although after the Creswell Colliery pit closed in 1992, the Band still plays on and can be heard around the local area of Creswell.
