We are pleased to announce that, although at short notice, we will be holding an open rehearsal on Thursday 9th May at Delph Band Club, Saddleworth, ahead of our Senior Trophy challenge.
The rehearsal will start at 7.30pm where our Professional Conductor, Russell Gray, will be taking us through our paces ready for the contest on Saturday.
‘Journey into Freedom’ is the set test piece and we are sure you’ll all agree it’s a cracker!
So come over to Delph Band Club and have a listen!

The band now look forward to the Regionals in Blackpool where we will play ‘Brass Triumphant’ and attempt to get out of the 1st Section!
