Without Butlins in 2024, we have started the year focussing on the Area contest piece for first section (High Peak by Eric Ball). The band are working hard and progressing nicely as each rehearsal takes us closer to the pre area contest on February 18th. 

On February 18th, the band placed 5th out of 9 bands competing in the NEMBBA pre area contest. There was lots of positive feedback as well as helpful feedback to work on over the coming weeks.

Section 1:

High Peak (Eric Ball)
Adjudicator: Alan Morrison

1. Unite the Union (Jonathan Beatty)
2. Yorkshire Imperial (Garry Hallas)
3. Hucknall & Linby MC (Paul Whyley)
4. Langley (Cliff Parker)
5. City of Coventry (Lee Woodward)
6. Strata Brass (Leigh Baker)
7. Chapeltown Silver Prize (Colum O'Shea)
8. Harborough (Ben Smith)
9. Carlton Brass (Chris Banks)

Best Cornet: Maria Beazer (Unite the Union)

To help strengthen our performance even more we invited John Roberts along to a rehearsal. He worked us hard, challenging us to improve lots of smaller details as well as to enhance the performance aspects.
