Its official… we have been promoted to the 1st Section from January 2021.

by Deb Lyons

Our promotion from 3rd to 1st Section is a fabulous reward to all the loyalty of everyone from Lilly right around to Breeny and everyone in between. We couldn’t list all of the players who have been on this Eagley journey and the loyalty is very much appreciated.

When Chris Wormald took over as MD at Eagley in September 2016, during this time Eagley has accomplished many firsts. A range of large concerts at the Victoria Hall with Smithills Community Band & Choir supporting local charities, 2 professional CDs, 4 trophies from Ripon, Butlins, Amboise and Blackpool just a few weeks ago together with prize money of £1,500. Eagley is not just about the music, we make sure there is a wide range of social events throughout the year such as meals to suit every taste, socials, quizzes and we give a big thanks to Geoff  and Janet and others have kindly organised. 

As the country struggles during this unsettling of the  COVID19 pandemic, Eagley like many other bands have families and friends who are front line or key workers.
From all of us at Eagley Band we want to say THANK YOU to all those we know and those we don’t. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
We can’t wait to see everyone when we come through the other side.
