STOP PRESS:  

One of our ex-players, but still regular supporter of the band, Dan Moore was recently approached by Awards for Young Musicians (A.Y.M.) for an update as they supported him very early in his musical career. If any youngsters are looking for music funding, this maybe a route to take. AYM also made a video of him and 19 others who had received awards in the past. Dan was also recently interviewed on Radio Lancashire:-

Useful Information

The band was promoted into the 1st Section Nationally in 2003 and then the Championship Section with effect from 1st January 2009. Generally we try to compete in 2-3 competitions each year including the North-West Regional Qualifiers (presently held at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool). In 2007, the band qualified for the National Finals in the 1st Section representing the North West and came a very creditable 3rd in the finals held at Harrogate, Yorkshire on Saturday 29th September 2007. In early 2008, the band found itself being promoted to the National Brass Band Championship Section early in 2008 after a very successful set of competition results at national level over the past 3 years. In 2011, we found ourselves back in the 1st Section nationally where we sit to the present day. After a period of 8 years in the 1st section, the band will now compete in the 2nd Section with effect from January 2019.

Booking Information:

All bookings for the band should be made through the Secretary.  Fees charged are to be discussed with the Secretary - we will take into account the type of function that we are being booked for as well as how long the engagement will last and how far we have to travel. 

Rehearsals:

Band rehearsals are held on Tuesdays & Fridays from 8.00pm-10.00pm at the Band Headquarters, Station Road, Poulton-le-Fylde. All members are expected to attend and if a member of the band is unable to attend they are expected to phone the Secretary in advance. We would ask that anyone wishing to come to the band `for a blow` contact the Secretary to make suitable arrangements. We always encourage players at a loose end to come & join us at rehearsals. We are proud of the way that we treat players and all young players are especially welcomed and looked after.
