    Firstly, my apologies for the late posting of this, and for the late start of band club. Unfortunately I had a couple of last minute drop outs. I've also been poorly the last few weeks, so I've been out of action I'm afraid. Getting back on track now, and Band Club is at the top of my agenda!! SO.....

    Due to unforseen circumstances, the police band have had to withdraw from Sunday night's regional night. They'll still be part of this years band club concert line up though, and you'll still be able to hear them perform at Bradford on the following weekend.

    I've not managed to get a replacement band for the first section so close to the night, but massive thanks to all the local 1st section bands for running round over the last couple of days trying to fill the gap :)

    So I'm afraid there's no brass triumphant this year at the regional night. But all the other sections are ready and raring to go.

    always a top night.

    Brilliant night on Sunday, packed out again, and some great performances from the bands.

    Thanks to Mike Kilroy for his valuable comments to each band, and to each band and MD that took part. Also to Unite the Union for providing the percussion and other equipment. And Garry Hallas for organising the recordings for the bands.

    No band club this Sunday due to the Yorkshire Regional Contest. Good luck to all the bands taking part, especially our friends from Band Club over the years.
