In 1999 Lofthouse Brass Band was reformed with a small group of players from Stanley Newmarket Band. There was no music, music stands or instruments, just a will to succeed. In the 20 years since we started the band, like most brass bands, have had its share of the highs and lows. We have represented Yorkshire in the National Championships twice and presently compete in the third section with a strong desire to continue to move forward and improve.
As we start on the 20th Anniversary celebrations there are a number of plans in place to mark this special year. They include the commissioning of a composition, celebratory dinner in June, a special concert with special guest Mark Walters (Flugel, Grimethorpe Colliery Band), various competitions on social media and a new website.
We hope every band member will join in with the celebrations and if you are an ex-member and would like to be part please contact the band by email firstname.lastname@example.org we would also like to see ex-members at the celebratory dinner in June, more details are available by contacting the events co-ordinator by email email@example.com.
