Rode Hall Silver Band runners-up at Wychavon Festival of Brass

The band travelled to Wychavon Festival of Brass on Saturday 29th October 2016 to compete in the 4th Section of the annual entertainments contest. The event was held at the De Montfort School in Evesham and the contest was adjudicated by Sarah Groarke-Booth. The musical programme was based around the band colours of blue, black and gold and went as follows:

  • Brooklyn - Youngblood Brass Band - Arr. Dave Collins
  • Don't it make my brown eye's blue - Richard Leigh - Arr. Darrol Barry
  • March Goldcrest - James Anderson
  • Sunrise over Blue Ridge - Dan Price
  • Paint it, Black - Mick Jagger and Keith Richards - Arr. Leigh Baker


The band are proud to announce that they achieved 2nd place in the contest, receiving The Lumsden Cup and £200 prize money. MD Nigel Butler is now looking to build on this great result as we move into the regional contest season in the new year.
