It has subsequently undergone a number of name changes:
Croydon Borough Band
Croydon Co-op Brass Band 1977 - 1998
Croydon Brass Band 1998 - 2009
Croydon Brass 2010 - present
The Band has rehearsed in several different venues in Croydon over the years. In 1967, with the development of Croydon Town Centre, the Band was left homeless. This meant a move out of Croydon and for the following ten years the Band rehearsed in the Sutton Arts Centre. In 1977 the Band secured a sponsorship deal with the South Suburban Co-operative Society. The Band then rehearsed at the London Road Co-op store in Croydon, until the Band was forced to move when the store was closed. After a spell rehearsing in Addiscombe the Band moved to its present home, the Parchmore Methodist Church and Community Centre in Thornton Heath.
