What a fantastic Brass festival Ironbridge put on. Neil Fury and his team deserve medals, well done!
Three great slots done with the Brassed Off story so well received, special thanks to Eric Smith (BBC presenter) who played our narrator.
Great to see Andy Wood and family there looking so well, Andy Wood will be back with us very soon.
It was Alan Smart’s last official concert before his retirement after 50 years of playing - a true gentleman and a banding legend.
A fantastic crowd all day, thank you we loved it!
A very enjoyable concert last night with the Singing Sensations at St Andrews.
It was also the first concert for our new Eb bass player Ian Timnath and a good job he did too. Welcome Sir. Ian and our MD played in the bass section at Fodens some 30 years ago but they pride themselves on not having changed much at all!!
A special thank you to intu Potteries shopping center who have donated the giant Brassed Off advert banner from the centre of their shopping area. Looking forward to proudly hanging it at the bandroom soon.
It’s massive. Thank you marketing team from intu Potteries Centre!
A fantastic experience last night supporting St Luke’s hospice Winsford.

Great night with great people. Well done all.
It’s just over 6 months since the devastating news that we had lost our dear dear friend Phil Edworthy (Strimmer). This video was taken only days before he fell so poorly. We’re looking forward to honouring Phil and his banding memory on 28th September in Longton.
God rest Strimmer x
A few fuzzy heads this morning post after party. Aside from being generally thankful for the last few weeks we’d like to send a special thanks to Lis Evans Hesketh for our wonderful parting gift. Very talented indeed.
