Cheltenham

So we are now home from Cheltenham after our first ever appearance in the National Finals. Unfortunately the result is not what we would have liked, but having listened to the recordings we can say we couldn’t have asked for anymore. We had an absolutely great weekend in Cheltenham and the whole proces of preparation, rehearsal and performance has been a fantastic journey for the Band, one which under the guidance of our inspiration MD Adam Taylor, we look forward to continuing onwards and upwards! Congratulations to our fellow NW Bands Brindle and Thornton Cleveleys

Finally a huge thanks to all our sponsors and supporters who have helped to make this all possible.

Thank you all for your good wishes.

Whit Friday Review

On Friday 9th June, 2017 the band set off to compete in the Annual Whit Friday Marches for the 3rd year running.  We were delighted to enter 6 villages and we won the 4th Section for all of them!  At Friezland, which is both 3rd and 4th section, we came 2nd overall!

The weather held out for us and the sun was clearly shining on us as we even beat some bands ranked 2 sections above us.

We are now looking forward to our Summer concerts and our first ever Nationals Contest as we head to Cheltenham in September.
