Tintwhistle Brass Band will be in concert at Woodley Methodist Church, Stockport on Friday 21st March. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to Epilepsy Action, so please come along for what promises to be an enjoyable evening for all.

Tickets cost £7.00 each and are available in advance from Phil on 0161 430 8518, or can be purchased on the door.

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. The band also reached No.1 in the national pop charts many years ago with its recording of “Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs.” . The most recent success for the band was in 2009 when they were crowned as 2nd Section Champions in the Midland Area Contest, qualifying the band to represent the Midland Area at the National Finals in Harrogate
