'During World War Two, brass bands in the Burnley area lacked support. But with the help of Colonel Parkinson with instruments and musicians from local bands, they formed the Burnley Home Guard Band. The Band continued after the war, and because the band was formed from an alliance of many bands, in 1951 its name was changed to the Burnley Alliance Silver Band.  The Band is totally self supporting, and presently has 25 regular players ... The band is happy to welcome new players & take bookings.'
