B&D3

Championship status retained

B&D were very pleased with their performance of Cambridge Variations at the North West Area on Sunday 28th February. In a strong field of 13 bands the feedback from spectators was very encouraging and we were expecting a top six placing. Our soloists played outstanding with some great ensemble work from the band we were placed 7th.
