2019 is already looking to be yet another very busy and exciting year for the Bideford Town Band.

In January the band spent a great weekend in the studio recording their latest CD which will be available for sale very soon.

In Febuary several of the band members attended the SWBBA winter workshop at West Buckland school. The tutors this year were all from the Black Dyke Band. Richard Marshall (Principal Cornet), Zoe Lovatt-Cooper (Flugel Horn) and Daniel Thomas (Principal Euphonium).  So a great weekend was enjoyed by all.

The band have just took part in the SWBBA west of England contest at Torquay. The 4th section test piece this year was Stantonbury Festival by Ray Steadman-Allen, which the band really enjoyed playing. There were 17 bands in the section and Bideford came a very commendable  6th place.

The band now looking forward to getting ready for several concerts, our annual solo contest ( held in Bideford )  a trip to the Whit Friday Marches at Sadleworth, our usual summer concerts down Westward Ho ! and of course lots of social events inbetween.
