Highworth Silver Band, The Band Hall, Lechlade Road, Highworth
The band is a brass band and has been in existence since at least 1887, when a local newspaper reported that it had performed for Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee celebrations. These days it is not a contesting band. It acquired this building in 1964. Previously it had been a Wesleyan (Methodist) chapel. The dedication stone at the top of the building reads "Wesleyan Chapel 1842". Prior to acquiring the building, the band used to rehearse in the Fishes public house (now closed) and the Saracens Head Hotel.
