We're still collecting donations

Our History

Malton White Star Band have been entertaining the people of Malton and surrounding area for over 100 years.

The band was formed from the Malton Temperance Band and in 1900 they changed their name to Malton White Star Band.

The name was taken from the white star that the bandsmen of the Temperance band wore on their lapel – a sign of ‘sobriety and faith’!


From then on Malton White Star Band played at civic events, the Malton Show and in 1934 the opening of the Milton Rooms amongst many other local events.

The band moved to it’s current practise room the Drill Hall in 1938 and it’s walls are currently adorned with photographs from the history of the band.


The band also played regular Saturdays at the local market – a tradition that continues today with their monthly appearance at the food market in the centre of Malton.


Malton White Star Band has a long tradition of entertaining the community in and around the town of Malton and further afield in North Yorkshire.


Our Vision

In 2023 we want to resume welcoming new players, beginners and comeback players to the band by starting our Training Band again which was curtailed by the pandemic in 2020.


Our Fundraiser

The main aim of this fundraiser is to raise enough money to purchase new music stands and cases for our outdoor events.

Our Christmas Concert - another way to support us!

Please come along and support us at our Christmas Concert in the Milton Rooms, Malton on December 8th. It's another way of contributing to our fundraising. Thank you!
