Reading to make Whit Friday debut

The band is very excited to be preparing for its upcoming away trip which will see the band make its debut appearance at the Saddleworth and Oldham Whit Friday Band Contests on Friday 10th June.


“This is a great opportunity for the band to experience the greatest free show on Earth in the heart of brass banding country”

rebecca devaney, secretary

The band will be led by its conductor Matthew Ruel and will be welcoming former members and friends into its ranks as it ‘steps off’ to Horatio Nicholls ‘March of the Herald’, followed by the band’s chosen contest march ‘Castell Coch’ composed by the Welsh march king T.J. Powell.

This is a great opportunity for the band to experience the greatest free show on Earth in the heart of brass banding country… and to work on the band’s marching skills!
