Description

Tintwistle Band is successful and currently enjoys Second Section status. The band is not sponsored and relies entirely on its members efforts.The Tintwistle Bandroom is situated on Old Road in the village. The bandroom was purchased and completely rebuilt after a long fund raising project. The project was completed in 1998 and secured the bands future for many years to come

The band is made up entirely of people who play for a hobby, giving up their time to play at concerts and contests throughout the country. We have been very fortunate in having received financial support from the National Lottery, the Foundation for Sports and the Arts and the High Peak Borough Council, which has enabled the band to buy and renovate a building in the village. The end result is a band-room that is probably one of the best in the country. We have also been able to purchase a completely new set of instruments, outdoor concert jackets and a trailer for transporting heavy items.

Over the years the band has been successful on the contest stage, some of the highlights being: Radio Manchester’s “Blow by Blow” champions, a “hat trick” of wins at Buxton Entertainments Contest, and success at contests in London, Oldham, Rochdale, Wigan and the annual Whit Friday march contests.

In 2004, the band came first at the annual Cumbria Brass Band Association contest in Whitehaven, and picked up fifth place in the National North West Midlands area contest.

More recently in 2009 the band were crowned as Second Section Champions in the Midland Area Contest. In 2014 once again the band were awarded third place in the contest.

In 2015 the band entered the Hardraw Scar entertainment contest for the first time and were rewarded by gaining second place.
In addition, concerts are given regularly at venues across the North-West.
