The Band gives concerts, Civic parades, Drum Head services etc. The aim is to further Brass Band music in the area and to give help to junior players. Indeed, they have an excellent ‘B’ band with about 30 improving players.
In 2011 the main band were promoted to the Championship Section! They are now regarded as one of the finest bands in Britain and the World!
New players, with or without experience, are always welcome. Instruments available for novice players. The ‘B’ Band provides an outstanding opportunity for new players to become proficient leading to promotion to the main band.
This group was put together in summer 2008 by Nicholas Smith & Glyn Taylor in order to bring a high quality operatic repertoire to Bollington. And, indeed, they put on a very successful first performance of Don Pasquale in the Arts Centre and then an outstnding performance of Dido and Aeneas in St Oswald’s Church. However, most regrettably the group has not been able to permanently establish itself and is now considered defunct.
The long established BLOG has a reputation for producing wonderful colourful musical theatre with no opportunity for comedy overlooked. See their web page.
