Hebden Bridge March Contest
The band thoroughly enjoyed a day out to Hebden Bridge March Contest on Sunday 16th June. Following on from Adrian’s resignation (due to family commitments), the band was led by John Binns playing the hymn tune Lloyd and the contest march The Senator. The band performed well on the day and came 2nd in the 3rd Section.
North West Area Contest
On Sunday 24th February, Littleborough Band, along with many more bands from the North West descended upon the Winter Gardens in Blackpool for the annual North West Area Contest. The band performed the area test piece for the 3rd Section (First Suite in Eb by Gustav Holst) under the baton of Adrian Woodhead, their longstanding conductor, but sadly the results did not reflect the hard work and dedication put into rehearsals prior to the contest. Out of 18 bands, Littleborough were positioned 17th and will move into the 4th Section from January 2020, where they will not be hanging around!
