    Brighouse and Rastrick Band will be led by former Professional Conductor Allan Withington in their assault on the English National title on June 27th. Allan is currently Professional conductor of Grimethorpe Colliery Band who have withdrawn from the contest.
    Brighouse have recently teamed up with their new Professional Conductor, David King but Professor King has a longstanding commitment in Australia on the day of the contest.
    This will be the first time Allan has conducted the band since the Yorkshire Area contest in 2002. Between 1992 and 2002 Allan’s contest victories with B&R included Masters titles on three occasions (1993, 1998 and 2001), a European title in 1998 and National Finals victories in 1997 and 1998.
    This is the 4th year of the contest and Brighouse will be hoping to improve on previous results ; a 2nd, 3rd and 4th place.
    Allan’s debut at this contest was in 2007 when he achieved 1st place with Grimethorpe Colliery on their debut at the contest. He went on to repeat the same result last year giving him a 100% record.
