A delighted solo euphonium, Gary Curtin was the recipient of the ‘Bandsman of the Year’ trophy, with principal cornet, Richard Marshall gaining the ‘Pondasher’ accolade.

Amazing amount

Director of Music, Prof Nicholas Childs told 4BR: “The ‘Bandsman of the Year’ is voted by the players, and many great performers have held this award.

This year it deservedly went to Gary Curtain; someone who has contributed an amazing amount, not just in concerts, but in some stunning contest winning performances."

No better

He added: “As all brass band loves know, a ‘Pondasher’ is a person who supports Black Dyke Band.

The award was presented to us by Ian and Jan Thompson and recognises a person that goes the extra mile, a person who leads by example. This year there has been no better who has done that than Richard Marshall."
