    Band article, The Times, 26th February

    This thread sums up why the brass band movement is in decline, a decent article in a quality national newspaper about a band with a great heritage, and all everyone seems to want to do is find fault with elements of the article. What happened to congratulations for raising the profile of...

    Have to say that i thought the standard of the performers at this years concert was (for me)the best for some time. The variety of music played/sung was also well thought out, and provided a good variety of musical styles, to keep the audience interested/entertained. I really enjoyed the...
