    For those of you waiting for details to appear of this years Pennine Brass Festival sadly the decision has been taken to cancel this years event. After 4 successful years, this year has seen the recent sad loss of the director of music at Halifax parish church. We also did not have enough bands to perform all the test pieces, It was felt that running a half-hearted event would not be the way to go.

    Every effort will be made to return with the festival in 2012.

    Thank you.

    Garry, sorry we couldn't fill your 4th section slot at short notice, but with a commitment already on Sunday PM, it was felt by the band it may be too much to ask of everyone.

    Please keep us in mind for next year if you need a 4th section band!

    all the best.

    That's a shame, Garry. I was going to come along for a listen.

    Hope things go better next year.

    It is a shame Gary, was looking forward to it. I just hope that the new Master of Music loves brass bands as much as Ian did.
