Welcome to the Anchormen

The Anchormen are a UK registered charity based in Elland, Halifax, West Yorkshire. We have a long and very successful marching band history and can trace our roots all the way back to 1904.

In more recent times we predominantly run dance classes for young children in our home, a former Wesley Methodist Church and the Savage Hall. We also host other organisations that promote education to young children in the local area. In total, over 100 young children and adults use our home on a weekly basis.
