Friends of Allerton Brass

At our Christmas Fantasia concert a couple of weeks ago we announced the launch of our Supporters’ Club, the Friends of Allerton Brass.

Below is the launch document prepared by our Chairman which explains the need for the Group and the initial benefits you will receive as a Friend in return for your annual subscription.

The Group officially launches on 1 January 2018 so if you are interested and would like more information, or you know now that you would like to become a Friend, just drop us an email through the Contact Page and we’ll get in touch and get you signed up.

Christmas Fantasia

Saturday 2nd December saw us get our Christmas Season off to a flying start with our Christmas Fantasia performance at our favourite Capstone Theatre. 

Supported by Ali White and the wonderful choir of Sudley Junior School (who were absolutely fabulous again this year) we performed a varied programme of music much of which had been arranged by our MD Adam Taylor and our Principal Euphonium Mike Jackson.

Judging by their reaction and comments the near capacity audience, our largest ever at Capstone, thoroughly enjoyed the evening.  The Band and the Choir too had a fantastic time and really enjoyed performing together. 

Despite only putting them together a couple of hours before the performance, our joint items went off really well too and the children were so disciplined as Sergeant Major Adam Taylor marched them off stage for the interval.

A huge vote of thanks to everyone who supported us on the night, to Ali White and Sudley Junior School Choir and of course to all the staff at Capstone who are so great to work with and provide so much help and support.

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.

Band Manager
