    Edit: for current vacancies and contact details please see most recent posts

    Haslingden and Helmshore Band are an ambitious and fun band based to the north of Manchester.

    So if you are up to challenge of a regular contest schedule [Pontins, Wilkinsons, Butlins, Brass at the Guild and our concerted effort to get straight back into the 1st section] mixed in with some entertaining concerts then we may be the band for you.

    So if fancy the challenge give me a call and come along for a blow, we don't bite.

  9. Having filled some positions in time for the recent NW Area contest, where we qualified for the finals in the 2nd section :biggrin:, we currently have the following vacancies :

    Soprano cornet
    Front row cornet
    Back row cornet

    So if you would like a chance to play at the finals in Harrogate then please get in touch and come along for a blow. We are based in Haslingden, which is just north of Manchester at the end of the M66. You can read all about us at www.haslingdenband.co.uk, and take a look at the photo galleries to see what a charming and attractive bunch we are :). We rehearse Tuesday evenings 8 til 10 and Sunday mornings 10 til 12.

    I would also like to thank Brian Topping, who resigned as soprano cornet after the Area due to work commitments, for all the work he has put in to the band in the last few years.

    Thanks,

  10. Following a very successful first half of the year, where we featured in the prizes in all 5 contests we entered, Haslingden and Helmshore band are looking to complete our line up with at least one good quality cornet player as we begin preparations for the 2nd Section National Finals in September.

    Recent contesting highlights have included a comprehensive win at Buxton, playing Peter Meechan's Purcell Variants, and some excellent Whit Friday results including two 2nd section wins and 7th place overall at Delph. So if you would like to join a band with a great atmosphere that is definitely going places, give me a call or contact us through the website.

    Thanks,

  20. We have a vacancy for tutti solo cornet to complete our line up for the Area contest. As of 2013 we are competing in the 1st section, and have just been placed a very creditable 8th out of 26 bands at the Butlins Mineworkers contest.

    So if you fancy Brass Triumphant in March then please get in touch.

    Note that we have recently had some IT problems, so as well as trying the contact details above please also send me a Private Message via this website, or post in this thread and I will get back to you.

    Thanks
