The Story Of Ambassadors Show Band
All in Unison
The Ambassadors Showband Derby is a marching band formed in September 1979, when the 11 founding members held a meeting at the house of Keith Holbrook in Borrowash. By the end of the meeting, the structure of the new organisation, as well as a constitution, which was drawn up by Stuart Henson had been agreed, and the Borrowash Band Fund was opened at the Midland Bank. The opening balance of £11 was the donation of £1 from each of the Founder Members. To these people we are eternally grateful.
At a committee meeting in January 1981, the name of the band was added to the constitution. The band could have been called The Skyliners but after much debate the name, Ambassadors of Borrowash was chosen.
The band has amazing opportunities to travel around the UK to perform and entertain the public at various Galas, Fêtes, Carnivals and Road Parades. Thanks to the hard work of the organisers who organise these events and invite us to come and entertain the public.
