News from St Breward Silver Band

” After almost a 10 year absence from the contesting scene, the ST BREWARD SILVER BAND took part yesterday in the South West Brass Band Championships at The Riviera International Centre at Torquay.

We were playing in the fourth section as an “ungraded band ” but up against other bands from the South West

When the results were announced, we won the ” best  ungraded band ” award AND placed 2nd overall. What a great result for all concerned, even more so for Tom Howard – our Musical Director – as it was his very first contest in which he was a conductor. All band members are extremely happy and surprised with the result too!

What next you may ask ? Many questions will need to be asked before we committ to another such event going forward More info from Band Secretary Mike Rowe 01208 73655 mkrowe@hotmail.co.uhttps://www.stbrewardsilverband.org/

Can you identify this Band?

Can you help identify the band in the picture?
The Cornish Studies Library is compiling a history of all Cornish brass/silver bands and is hoping that someone in the area might be able to identify the band.  The picture could well have been taken on The Green in Blisland
Please contact Mike Rowe from St Breward Silver Band if you can offer any information or ideas 07713 607659 mkrowe@hotmail.co.uk
