Come and celebrate Mothering Sunday (26th March) with us at our next concert at St Cuthbert’s Church, Cheadle. It’s sure to put a smile on Mum’s face (as long as you bring her along!!).

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.
