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.

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.
