Are you a brass player? Your chance to join us

by Deb Lyons
2021 National Brass Band Finalists, Cheltenham (2nd Section)
Do you live in the Bolton area, play a brass band instrument to a good standard and fancy playing with a highly successful local band with 170 years of proud history?
Due to four of our best teenage players having started at university, our normally full band is urgently seeking good Cornet, Tenor Horn, Euphonium and B Flat Bass players to complete our line-up again.
We perform three or four major gala concerts every year to 1,000 people in Bolton’s Victoria Hall, plus a very small number of full concerts, mainly in the Autumn, and smaller band carolling engagements in December, but never anything at all any distance from Bolton except for the annual Blackpool Areas by coach (and Cheltenham by coach if we qualify!).
We rehearse Mondays & Thursdays 8pm-9.30pm in our own bandroom, Bolton town centre.
If you are even a little interested or tempted and would like to come down for a rehearsal to see for yourself with pleasure, please ring Deb Lyons (07731 996925) or e-mail Chris Wormald with pleasure.
We would love to welcome anyone who is interested in playing with what we believe is a unique band of friends who all want to play to their very best abilities.
We have 170 years of band history to keep going too!
