List of Conductors Past and Present



This page has been researched and collated in order to list all of the conductors who have held the position of Musical Director of the Band, under its various names.
Starting in 1867 with David Heap, M.D. of the Goodshawfold Brass Band and throughout the name changes, up to current times as the BMP Europe Goodshaw Band.

As you will see, there have been some incredibly famous people from within the Brass Band Movement, who have had the privilege of Conducting our Band.
And I am sure that there will be many more who would wish to follow suit.

The following list is in chronological order from the initial formation to our present Musical Director.
