Our fantastic 2nd place in the 3rd Section of the Midlands Area Brass Band Championships in Bedworth on Saturday 12th March means that we will be representing the Midlands at the National Championships in September!

Our Musical Director, Oliver Wilson said “this is a tremendous result for the band and is a reward for the amazing commitment and hard work of everyone.”

Vacancies

The band has a policy whereby any brass or percussion player deemed to be of suitable standard by the Musical Director can join the band and perform at concerts*.

The band rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 7:45pm at the Stourport Sports Club so why not come along!

 

 

 

*Because of contest rules, the number of players is limited when competing  and in this situation the Musical Director will decide who will play at the contest.
