Hatherleigh Silver Band are one of the top 6 again
Your very own town band is one of the top 6 in the country in the 4th Section again after competing at the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain at Cheltenham Racecourse in September. The piece was Petite Suite de Ballet by Eric Ball. We unfortunately drew 18th to play which meant it was a very long day with lots of waiting around! But we had a great night out afterwards celebrating and everyone enjoyed themselves.
Thank you to all of you who supported our Cider and Pasty evening despite the weather! We had a great night and hope you did too.
We are now revisiting The Journal of Philaeas Fogg which saw us win the 2016 Regional Finals in Torquay. We have chosen this as our ?own choice? test piece in The South West Brass Band Contest in Torquay on the 4th November. It is just the most amazing piece of music as those of you who came to our open rehearsal last year will remember.
The following week is of course Hatherleigh Carnival where we will be leading the parades in the afternoon and evening processions. We will also be marching at Holsworthy Carnival.
Date for your diary: Our Christmas Concert is on Saturday December 9th at 7.30pm. Complimentary mince pies and the bar will be open!
