Foxwood Steel was born, almost accidentally, at Foxwood School in the mid-eighties. Today it is an all-age semi-professional steelband, providing the backbone for many Leeds civic events. See the Blog for the bigger story
Practices are few and far, occasionally at NewMoorsides, in Woodhouse in Leeds, and mostly for weddings.
Players include teachers, school support staff, a nurse, office workers, store managers, bar manager, a sports centre worker, and some [five!] who teach and run their own steelbands.
Band leader: Victoria Jaquiss
Assistant leader: Bex Ainge
