After their recent success in Preston the band took to the satge once again with Brass Metamorphosis by James Curnow. This time there were more bands to compete against along with tougher opponents, however the players did not let this faze them and played their best.
The band had 14 other bands to compete against with some of these bands coming back into the 1st section after relagation from the championship section. James and the players knew that the competition would be fierce.
The band came 4th overall missing out on a qualification spot for the National Finals by just two places. Qualification would have allowed the band to visit Cheltenham for a fourth consecutive year, however it was not meant to be this year.
The band are very happy with the result and look forward to the North West Area's next year.
