Musical Director

Wayne Alexander-Bostwick

Wayne joined the band at the begining of 2023 and brought with him a wealth of musical talent both as a player and conductor. Wayne started his banding at the young age of 8 with Grimethorpe Juniors on cornet. From here he moved on to play with Warren Band in Huddersfield where he took a (very!) large leap onto the Bass section where he remained for his years as a player. His playing experience spans many years and across a number of very well-known bands including Carlton Main Frickley Colliery, Stocksbridge, South Yorkshire Police, Old Silkstone and Rothwell Temperance.

Wayne’s playing took him throughout the UK and Europe before he decided to give the mouthpiece a rest and pick up the stick as a conductor. Wayne had a successful conducting career with Silkstone b Brass and Honley Silver before he took his stick to Frickley South Elmsall in the Second section earning a very respectable 6th place at the Yorkshire areas. After many years of contesting as both a player and conductor Wayne decided to put his contest stage days behind him and took the MD position at Thorpe Hesley before taking the MD position at Cawthorne.

Cawthorne Brass Band is a non-contesting traditional village band, which has existed since 1873
