Since 1990 the Derby Midshipmen Band have entered over 100 contests. 'The Middies' have never been out of the top three places having obtained 83% of these in first place. The Middies currently have 21 consecutive 1st place wins spanning back from 2004 to 2012. This record has earned them the reputation of being one of the most successful and professional marching bands in the UK...
Back in 1935 (84 years ago) a small group of friends decided to try and start up a local marching band. Who, back then, would have thought that more than 80 years later this independent and self-funded band would have been one of the most successful and professional marching and display bands of its time? The band have travelled the length and breadth of the UK performing at some of the most prestigious venues you could imagine as well as supporting local carnivals.
