The band were pleased to see so many friends, supporters and former bandsman at our Pre Contest Festival on Friday evening. The programme was part of the Brass Arts Festival organised by Philip Biggs Brass Festivals Ltd a long time friend of the band.

Under the leadership of Bandmaster Iain Parkhouse and and guest, Commissioner Robert Donaldson, the band presented a varied programme of music which recognised the 125 year history of the band.

We were delighted to welcome former bandsman Richard Martin as our guest soloist for the evening.

For those of you who were unable to join us at Regent Hall, the programme is shown below. The programme concluded, as ever, with The Red Shield march.
