  David Allen was the Chair of the Board of Trustees for 14 years and a driving force behind the musical scenes

Black Dyke Band has announced the retirement of its Chair of Trustees, David Allen.

He had been in the post for 14 years and a trustee of the Queensbury band for eighteen — being seen as integral driving force in supporting the musical success achieved during the tenure of Director of Music, Prof Nicholas Childs.

Support

Speaking on behalf of the band, Prof Childs told 4BR: "I've been the beneficiary of David's loyal and consistent support every since he came to the band. He has shared a vision for the band that has made Black Dyke a name respected throughout the musical world.

Everyone associated with Black Dyke is indebted to him for his organisational skills, as well as his personal financial support of the band over such an extended period of time."

New Chair

He will be replaced as Chair of Trustees by Trevor Caffull, CEO of Salvation Army Trading Company, and himself a trustee of Black Dyke for the past 10 years.

He told 4BR: "I would wish to put on record the thanks of the board of trustees to David Allen for his unstinting service to Black Dyke Band over the past 18 years.

I am humbled that the trustees have asked me to succeed David, and although the current challenges, which will be familiar to all bands in these days, are significant, I remain optimistic for the future of brass bands generally and in particular for Black Dyke Band".

The current Yorkshire Area Champion recently announced its new partnership deal with Geneva Instruments and is English banding's representative at the 2021 European Brass Band Championships in Malmo, Sweden.
