  1. Pennine Brass Festival -listen to all the set tests prior to the Areas!

    The Pennine Brass Festival is set to take place next month with bands representing all five sections, from Haworth to Rothwell Temperance.

    The Pennine Brass Festival is taking place on Saturday 27th February 2010 at 6pm in the magnificent Halifax Minster. It features performances by Haworth Band, Lofthouse 2000 Band, Emley Band, and Hebden Bridge Band, with the fantastic Rothwell Temperance Band providing the finale.

    Each band will perform a hymn followed by their set test piece; adjudication and a summary of each performance is to be provided by Malcolm Brownbill. As each of the five sections is represented, it is an opportunity to hear performances of each test piece before the regional contests in early March.

    The Festival was held for the first time in 2006 and was a great success.
    The concept for the event came about during discussions between Philip Wilby and the committee of Hebden Bridge Band, who are responsible for organising the festival.
    Admission is £3 on the door.

    The Pennine Festival - often copied, never bettered! :biggrin:
