Great result at Spring Festival 2017

Drighlington Band enjoyed another year at Blackpool's Spring Festival on 13th May, competing in the Senior Trophy against 18 other bands.

The band played off draw number 14 and this year's test piece was Salute to Youth by Gilbert Vinter.

The performance went very well under Duncan Beckley's direction which led to Drighlington being placed in 5th, narrowly missing out on promotion by just one place.

Onwards & upwards, we look forward to competing in the festival once again in 2018 and aiming to do one better and gain promotion to the Senior Cup.   


Appointment of Musical Director

Drighlington Band are delighted to announce the appointment of Duncan Beckley as their new MD.
Following the departure of John Roberts in August, the band has been looking for the right person to direct the band.
“Duncan has proved to us that he is an excellent band trainer and we are looking forward to building the band prior to the contesting season next year. He brings with him a wealth of experience and player base to strengthen the band”.
The band has a busy concert schedule in the lead up to Christmas, starting with a collaboration with the folk musician Roger Davies as part of the Brighouse Arts Festival on Saturday 22nd October at Brighouse Methodist Church.
Duncan will make his debut at the upcoming Holmfirth contest in November.
