The Award-Winning Bollington Brass Band and Bollington “B” band will be performing a varied programme of music to suit all tastes. All profits towards the running and upkeep of Bollington Arts Centre.

Bollington Brass Band was formed in the 19th century, first appearing at Macclesfield contest in 1856 and continued until having to disband at the outbreak of the Second World War. The present Band owes it’s origin to a group of enthusiasts who met together in 1972, with Dr John Coope as Musical Director.

When Brian Taylor was appointed as Musical Director in 1985 the band began to make considerable progress, gaining promotion from the 4th to the 2nd section. After Brian’s tragic death in 1994 the baton passed first to Bob Wyatt then to Tim Power before Peter Christian was appointed as Musical Director in 2001. Under the leadership of Peter Christian the Band has enjoyed considerable success in the contest arena both in the UK and abroad.

In February last year the Band were crowned North West Area Champions (2nd section) at the annual Regional Championships in Blackpool and went on to represent the North West of England at the National Finals in Cheltenham in September. This fantastic result at the Regional Championships also means that the Band has won promotion to the 1st Section for 2020!

The Band are committed to playing their part in the local community and as well as supporting local events they also run a thriving “B” Band for up-and-coming musicians of all ages and abilities.
