Eccles Snare Second Place at National Finals

Eccles Borough Band added another trophy to the shelf recently, as they achieved a remarkable second place position at this year’s Second Section National Finals in Cheltenham.

Welcome to Eccles Borough Band’s Website

Eccles Borough Band is currently enjoying one of its most successful periods in recent times. Currently the 2nd Section Champions at the Wychavon Festival of Brass and the Butlin’s Mineworkers Festival, the band is delighted to have secured promotion to the First Section for 2016 thanks to the hard work of the band’s players and supporters.

The band regularly performs on the concert stage with biannual concerts at the Eccles Town Hall a particular highlight as well as a busy festive season in the Salford area and further afield.

The band looks to add to the trophy cabinet in 2015 with a return to the Whit Friday March Contests in Tameside and Saddleworth, a trip to compete against Scotland’s finest bands at the famous Land o’ Burns Entertainment Contest and the defence of our Wychavon title at the end of the year.

The band rehearse in its own band room in the heart of Eccles and has done so as far back as 1920 with current members having travelled from as far afield as Singapore, Ireland, France, the USA, Scotland, Australia, Wales, and even Yorkshire to play with Eccles’ finest!
