We are a friendly and lively brass band in Marple, Stockport and we are currently competing in the 3rd section.
Hawk Green Band has no commercial sponsors and its members work hard throughout the year raising the funds required to run the band. Each year the band represents Marple and Hawk Green at local functions and in contests and provides entertainment at several events which have become an annual fixture.
You can find us at our bandroom located on Station Road in Marple, on the edge of Memorial Park.
The Ring o Bells is a multi award winning pub in the heart of Marple. It sits alongside the canal and has its own canal boat which has been transformed into a floating pub and party boat.
The Bell can be chartered for all occasions then returning to the Ring o Bells for a meal. The pub itself if full of charm and character with open fires and walls adorned with pictures of Marple and the pub from a bygone era.
It is open all day everyday and offers fresh home cooked food throughout the day. There is a canal side terrace which through the summer has weekly brass band concerts whilst enjoying the food and drink on offer. In the evenings there are quiz nights and regular light indoor entertainment to cater for all tastes.
