2nd Place at Northern Open

Yesterday the band took to the stage at St Helen's Theatre Royal for the Northern Open Brass Band Championships.

The band, all with one finger nail painted in the 'Vernon Green' colour, was the last group to play on the day.

We left our best performance of Philip Wilby's Red Priest in the rehearsal room and all came off stage knowing that we hadn't played anywhere near our best... but it shows how far the band has come over recent months when we still managed to claim the 2nd place prize on what we felt to be a poor performance!

The band now looks forward to getting the Christmas Music pads out for a fun filled festive season, whilst also getting to grips with the Butlins test piece Vitae Aeternum by Paul Lovatt-Cooper.
