Back in February the band took a long coach journey over the border to Bangor University in Wales to take part in the annual University Brass Band Championships (UniBrass). We were all very happy with how we played on stage and it was great news to hear that we were placed 5th we our “Light” themed programme, lead by conductors George Newbould and Jed Roylance as well as featuring our Principal Cornet player, Will Thirkell.

Recordings of all performances from the day have now been uploaded onto the UniBrass YouTube channel for your viewing and listening pleasure! The band is really looking forward to returning to Bangor University for the 2020 Championships and hope to improve upon this fantastic result.
