Description

The Marple Band are a 2nd Section (2014 National 2nd Section Champions) Brass Band based in Marple, Cheshire.

The Marple Brass Band was founded in 1900 and included reed instruments in its early days. There have been many ups and downs of musical fortune in times past, but its more recent history included appearances at the Royal Albert Hall in the National Brass Band Championship Finals in 1994 and a wonderful win at the British Open Brass Band Championship in 1996 at the Bridgewater Hall.

The current band has recently started contesting again and in March 2013 became the North West 3rd Section Regional Champions. We then competed at the National finals in Cheltenham in September 2103. The band has now been promoted to the second section at national level and again competed in the North West Regional contest in March 2014, attaining a very creditable 2nd placement. The band is again taking part at the National finals, this time as a 2nd section band. We also compete in the Whit Friday March Contest which means dashing around the small Saddleworth and Tameside villages in a 50 seater coach to compete at around 8 or 9 events.
