We are moving!
We will be rehearsing in Pickmere for the Summer. Anyone missing playing in a band, or want to add a Tuesday evening to your practice routines, come along to a rehearsal or two and see how we enjoy our music, are keen to improve, while maintaining a great sense of humour. See our About Us for the address, along with the address and a link to a map!

Today we played at Congleton Park in the rain.
We had an audience and so the show went on.
Sadly, it was the last time that Ron would conduct the band as he has decided to move on to other things.
At the end of the concert, we presented Ron with a gift and a card signed by the band. Finally, under the baton of our training band conductor, Mike, we played "Thank You For The Music".
We wish Ron all the best for the future.

We welcome John Cookson, who has joined the band, adding to the already stellar Trombone Section.
After 592 days, we finally got to sit on a stage (well, on chairs on wet grass) on Saturday 7th August. Julian kindly set up the gazebo, so most of us stayed dry when the heavens opened up. Click here to see some great pictures of the event.
