SSB ready to contest again!

Stockport Silver Band are pleased to announce our return to contesting after a 25 year break! The first contest that we hope to enter is the North West Regional Championships at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool on Sunday 28th February, 2016. We are currently enjoying practicing The Journal of Phileas Fogg by Peter Graham under the baton of Ian Colwell.

With the exception of Whit Friday, the last contests Stockport Silver Band entered was Pontins Southport and the Northwest Area in March 1991. The band was close to folding in 2004 when a call out was made to find new players. Stockport Silver has since gone from strength to strength and we now have 24 current members, some of whom previously contested with the band!

We are just missing a couple of positions to make up the full band for the contest, these are Cornet (position on playing standard), Bb Bass and Percussion. Please get in touch if you are interested in joining us on this adventure! (

Stockport Silver Band rehearse every Tuesday evening from 8pm to 10pm at Whitfield House, (Viaduct Street, Stockport SK3 0AD) near Stockport bus station. For more information have a look around our website.
