Dear All Myself & a number of interested players are currently in the process of re-forming one of the Peak District's most prominent brass bands; Chapel en le Frith Town Band. The band has been inactive for some time and we are dedicated to making every effort to restore it to it's former glory. We are currently in the process of trying to contact all ex-Chapel players & any other local players who would like to be involved in re-establishing a committed, happy band. So if that is you, please read on... We are hoping to enter the 3rd section regional contest at Burton-upon-Trent in March and already have our first engagement for the Christmas lights turning on in Chapel town centre. There are a set of Sovereign instruments at the bandroom just waiting to be played, so we have organized an informal 'blow-in' on Sunday 10th October from 11am-1pm at the bandroom (next to the cricket club), off Willow Drive, Chapel en le Frith for anyone who is interested. If you would like to be a part of this venture but are unable to attend the 'blow-in', or would like further information, please contact myself - Aidan Howgate (Conductor) - on 07817 191255, or Bob Mulholland (Chairman) on 01298 812816. We will also be establishing a junior band once the senior band is up & running and already have a number of people committed to teaching the juniors, both singly & in groups. If your child would like to be involved in our junior band please contact one of the above numbers & we will enrol them today.
