Fairey Band and Stockport School’s Brass Band
We are delighted to be hosting a joint concert of Remembrance with the Stockport School’s Brass Band on Friday 9th November, 7:30pm at St Elisabeth’s Church, Reddish, Stockport. To enquire about tickets please use the contact section of the website or come along and pay on the door on the evening.
The Fairey Band are extremely proud to be representing England at the 2018 European Brass Band Championships in Utrecht in May.
We have been hard at work getting the pieces up to scratch! The video below features some of the preparations the band have been making before their performances of ‘Time for Outrage!’ and our own choice test piece that has been commissioned especially for the occasion.
The contest will be broadcast live on the internet so be sure to tune in to www.brasspass.tv on 4th & 5th of May.
Reminder: The band will be putting on a FREE concert on Sunday 29th April at Glossop Band Club featuring both of the test pieces.
As part of a concert at Mansfield Palace Theatre on 15th April 2018, the band’s Solo Horn player Rachel Neil gave this wonderful rendition of The Lark in the Clear Air (Goff Richards), with guest conductor Sandy Smith.

As part of a recent concert honouring Gordon Langford’s great contribution to the Brass Banding movement, the band performed his arrangement of Scarborough Fair for two trombones.
This wonderful performance features our Solo Trombone Becky Lundberg & 2nd Trombone Isobel Daws.
