Haverhill band aiming for national title glory

Haverhill Silver Band will compete in the National Brass Band Championship Finals in Cheltenham on September 20.

Having won a regional qualifier in March, they will compete against other top bands from the UK.

The band must perform a set test-piece, The Alchymist’s Journal, that will be judged against the performances of the other 15 competing bands, with the winners crowned national champions.

As well as competing in the national finals, the band is preparing for local concerts at Thaxted Church on October 24 and Haverhill Arts Centre on November 15.

The band thanked Marshall Group of Cambridge, IFF, Herberts and Haverhill Town Council for their financial support.
