Welcome to Stockport Silver Band’s website.
We’re a fun, but focused, friendly 4th section band who enjoy performing at a good mix of community events/festivals and concerts throughout the year.
Our comfortable rehearsal room is conveniently located underneath the arches of Stockport’s famous viaduct, just minutes from J1 of the M60 and walking distance from both Stockport Train and Bus stations.
Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings, 8–10pm.
New members always welcomed – please get in touch to find out more.

A huge congratulations to our principal Euph, Mark Drabble, and our principal Bari, Sarah Boyd, who got married yesterday. It was an honour for us to play for you both. What a wonderful day!
Whit Friday Results
Tameside have finally released their results for Whit Friday!
We’re really pleased to have come the 2nd highest 4th section band at both Broadoak (where we also came 2nd highest local band) and Carrbrook!
We were the 5th highest 4th section band overall out of 12 qualifying 4th section bands and came 32nd overall out of 41 qualifying bands in Tameside! All in all a very good night!
A big thank you to David Hodgkinson for taking us on the night!
2016 North West Regional Championships
It was the first time we’d contested in 25 years and approximately a third of the band members had never contested before.
We had a lovely relaxed day, drawn 7th so no need to rush and not too much waiting about. We were all very nervous on stage but played our best.
When the results for the 4th section came in, we were really pleased as we came 12th!!!! We think this is a fantastic result and we’re looking forward to improving as we continue to contest over the coming years. We’re now looking forward to playing at the Buxton Contest in May.
