On Sunday 10th March, Foss Dyke set off to Bedworth in Warwickshire, ready to take part in the Midlands Brass Band Association Regional Contest. The test piece this year was Rise of the Phoenix by Darrol Barry.

There was a strong competition this year with 13 bands competing to claim the title of Regional Contest section champions. Although we maybe didn’t play to our absolute best, we came of the stage proud of our achievements as a band. Foss Dyke claimed 4th place overall, a placing any band would be proud of.

Not only is this an excellent result of the band but we have claimed enough points to be promoted as a 1st Section band from January 2020. The band are very proud of this and would like to thank their Musical Director Mike Howley for all this hard work to get us to this point.

The band now looks forward to the banding year ahead with concerts and more contests to come!

All our competition results can be viewed on the Results page.
