Our history

The Kensington and Norwood City Band was established in 1898 as the Magill Model Band. It was accorded vice regal status in 1926 in recognition of services rendered to Government House. When Norwood reached City status in 1953 the Band became known as the Kensington & Norwood City Band.


The band acknowledges the continued support from the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters.
