Fresh from their success in claiming the Fourth Section Butlin's Open Brass Band Festival title in Skegness, the Golborne Band is preparing to host a special 'Regional test-piece showcase' event.
It will take place at Golborne Community Club on 29th January (WA3 3AF) — starting at 7.30pm, and will feature performances from Blackburn & Darwen (Championship Section); Haslingden & Helmshore (Second Section); Skelmersdale Band (Third Section) and the home town favourites (Fourth Section).
Speaking about the event as well as looking back on that Skegness triumph, Golborne MD, Joshua Hughes tod 4BR: "I'm extremely proud of the band's victory. We are determined to do well at the North West Regional Championships and everyone rushed back home on the Monday to have a rehearsal that evening on the Area test piece.
This is the first time we have hosted anything like this and it's a real community effort. We are looking forward to meeting up with the other bands and getting feedback from the unofficial adjudicator for the evening Andrew Berryman."
