Past Presidents


Edward Woodward OBE became president of Callington Town Band in 2008.  Although the Band were saddened by his death he will be remembered for his all-too-short -tenure with affection and gratitude.

Edward had an illustrious career, from working with the Royal Shakespeare Company to appearing at the national theatre with Sir Lawrence Olivier.  He has had success on UK television with "Callan" and in America with "The Equaliser", for which he won a Golden Globe Award.  He appeared in cult films and and in straight plays and musicals on Broadway, also making LP's and winning three gold record awards.   Before his death, Edward not long finished filming "A Congregation of Ghosts" in Cornwall which is based on the life of the eccentric Warleggan vicar, Reverend Densham


Michele Dotrice agreed to take over the presidency after the death of her husband Edward Woodward.  Michele retired from this position in 2014 with our warmest and affectionate thanks.

Michele is probably best remembered for her character as 'Betty', Frank's long suffering wife in "Some Mothers do 'ave 'em".

Having a long and varied career since 1961, Michele appeared on British television in productions such as "The Treasure Seekers", "Henry the fourth", "Miss Marple Mysteries" and "The Mirror Cracked from side to side".
