'The Society developed from a concert held on 17th March 1977 by the Coull Quartet who returned 40 years later to perform at the Society’s anniversary concert. This concert had been suggested by the daughter of founder members Philip and Mary Mottram, who was friendly with members of the quartet.

‘An early music group based in the town of Doncaster. They take their name from the bands of musicians who used to be employed by local corporations as town musicians, “The Waites”. The present band are all local musicians with an interest in early music. They have been together now for a considerable number of years! The music they play is generally centred around the first half of the 17th century, the time when the first detailed accounts of the original Doncaster Waites appear in the archives. Their costume is also based on these accounts and the men accurately represent how the original Waites would have looked at that time. Women of course would never have been Waites, but we like to think that the Waites would have been joined by their friends and family in private music making in the houses and inns of Doncaster.‘
