2017 North West Regional Championships

The band were absolutely delighted with our performance at the Regional Contest at Blackpool. Sadly, it wasn’t to be reflected in the final results (15 out of 17) but we thoroughly enjoyed the day and are so proud of how hard all our members have worked in the run up.
 
Congratulations to all bands who took part on the day and to the contest organisers – a record 81 bands took part in our region and we’re proud to be one of them!
 
Whilst we’re enjoying a short break from testpieces to focus on our upcoming concert programmes, we’re keen to get back out there and hope to be participating at other local contests in 2017 including Buxton, Whit Friday and Rochdale.

This was a Stockport Silver Band job and Reddish Prize helped enormously.

Debdale park on St George’s Day weekend, the wind got beneath that canopy so the band played one handed,the other hand trying to prevent the bandstand becoming a danger to civil aviation!!

Stockport Silver Band had a lovely surprise in December when we received £100 from the “Mary Mather Fund” through the NWABBA.
This will enable the band to buy some more mutes for the cornet section!
A big thank you  to the late Marty Mather and the NWABBA.
