Pre Contest Festival 2019

Garry AmbroseNews

The band are pleased to announce details of our 2019 Pre Contest Festival.

We are delighted that our guest soloist this year is Thomas Nielsen. Thomas is the principal cornet with the National Youth Brass Band, a member of Croydon Citadel Band and now also a memeber of the International Staff Band.

An outstanding recital performance of rare maturity and character, “that just stood out a little bit more” saw cornet player Thomas Nielsen deservedly claim the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Young Brass Award.

We are pleased that Bandmaster Andrew Blyth will also join us as compere and guest conductor alongside our own Bandmaster Don Jenkins.

Tickets are available at £10 each and can be purchased from our online store
