Jingle All the Way

Our annual Christmas concert at the Conservative Club in Marple was a huge success and the band played to a packed house. The festive Yuletide performance was a triumph of Christmas music enjoyed by all. There was no shortage of tinsel and the obligatory collection of Christmas hats which were donned in the second half of the concert. Lots of good audience participation in The Twelve Days of Christmas – not a ‘Bah Humbug’ to be heard anywhere in the room.

Thank you to all who came along to support us and helped get Christmas off to a very jolly start. Thank you also for helping us raise over £600 which, as always, all goes toward new music, instruments and running your Marple Band. Many congratulations to the person who won the Christmas Star Prize Draw luxury hamper.

The band will be playing carols in Marple again on Christmas Eve from 10:00am so please do come down and say hi. From all the players and committee at The Marple Band, we wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year for 2016.

Please see our concerts page for 2016 engagements.

This follows the fantastic winning result as Second Section National Champions at Cheltenham last September. This will be the first time the band has competed at first section standard for over 20 years.

National Champions at Cheltenham 2014

In a historic setting, more famous for the ‘Gold Cup’, The Marple Band triumphed by a clear length to once again bring home the silverware and become the Second Section National Champions.

It was a truly memorable occasion for the band, rekindling many memories, as we gathered for photos, moments after hearing the winning announcement, “…the band that played third…”

It was a Herculean team effort for the band, following an earlier, unsettled run-up to the contest, which was carefully orchestrated by Sarah Groarke-Booth, who returned to conduct the band she played for in her youth, only three weeks prior to the contest. Continue Reading
