National Concert Band Festival Result


Not only did we go to the festival over the hill in Oldham, we came away with a Platinum award in the community band section.
The NCBF awards in the festival are graded and each band is awarded a grading based on their performance.
The grades awarded are Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze and we are pleased to have been awarded the platinum award which is a testament to the hard work the band has put into the pieces we played and to the guidance of John Turnbull our MD
