Whit Friday Band Festival

Friday 20th May 2016

Matt Shaw (MD)
It would seem that last night (20th May) was a very successful Whit Friday for my fantastic band, and I am indeed a very happy and proud MD. 4 'Best 3rd Section' prizes and an overall 3rd at Friezland, which considering we did 8 contests is an amazing achievement! Well done and thank you for all the hard work to the mighty Farnworth and Walkden Brass band!
