Eccles Qualify for Finals

March 16th 2013
On Sunday 10th March 2013, Eccles Borough Band took part in the North West Regional Championships in the third section.

Drawn to play 11th out of 16 bands, we were delighted that the adjudicators, Alan Holdsworth and Barry Thompson placed our performance of Goff Richard’s ‘Hollywood’ in second place.

This meant that we have qualified for the National Championships of Great Britain, which are to be held at Cheltenham in September. It also means that from January 2014 Eccles Borough Band will be promoted to the Second Section, our highest ranking since the early 1960’s.

Our congratulations go to Marple Band who won the contest and to Hawk Green Band who came third. Both bands will be joining us in representing the North West region at the finals in September.

Below is a recording of our prize winning performance of Hollywood.
