Two Glossop wards used the Bandroom as their Polling Station on 6th May.

We think this may be the first time the Bandroom has been used for that purpose and it could be that more people went inside than at any other time in the building's history.

It would be interesting to know how many of these entered for the very first time or didn't even know it was there before.

Whit Friday - 9th June 2017

An almost prerequisite event in every Northern Brass Band’s calendar Glossop Old Band took part in the Whit Friday march contests in Tameside. Under the baton of guest MD Billy Rushworth the band claimed 3 second section 1st prizes, 1 second section 2nd prize, 2 first band to play prizes and a special mention to Dave Richardson who won the prize for best solo cornet at Top Mosley contest (our 12th and final stop of the evening). The band played the contest march O.R.B which was written by Charles Anderson for the Oldham Rifle Brigade. Having managed to make it round an amazing 12 contests in the night the band were exhausted but had a wonderful evening.

Well - we did it! We brought home some silverware coming 2nd in the 2nd section at the National Finals.

A huge thank you to everyone in the local community that has helped support getting us there - it is very much appreciated

Late Spring concerts

The band have played concerts during late Spring/early Summer at St. Jame’s church in Glossop and the Ring O’ Bells pub in Marple to wonderful and appreciative crowds. The band have enjoyed these concerts greatly as they allow us to perform for our supporters and take a short break from contest preparation. We are also planning more engagements through the summer at Mouselow farm and  Boarshurst band club no name two.
