Enfield Citadel Band was founded in Tottenham, north London, in 1892, and soon established a reputation as one of the Salvation Army's leading musical groups. In 1972, with the merging of two Salvation Army corps, the band moved to Enfield, on the outskirts of north London, and assumed its present title.
In addition to service within its own locality, Enfield Citadel Band travels extensively to present its ministry in music making. It has performed in most of the major concert venues in the British Isles and has shared programmes with some of the leading contesting bands including Black Dyke, Fairey's, Foden's and Brighouse & Rastrick.
