Venue: Bollington Arts Centre,
Wellington Road, Bollington
Monday and Thursday evenings 8.00pm to 10.00pm.
The Band gives concerts, Civic parades, Drum Head services etc. The aim is to
further Brass Band music in the area and to give help to junior players. Indeed, they have an excellent 'B' band with about 30 improving players.
In 2011 the main band were promoted to the Championship
Section! They are now regarded as one of the finest bands in Britain
and the World!
New players, with or without experience, are always welcome. Instruments
available for novice players. The 'B' Band provides an outstanding opportunity
for new players to become proficient leading to promotion to the main band.
Bollington Festival Opera
This group was put together in summer 2008 by Nicholas
Smith & Glyn
Taylor in order to bring a high quality operatic repertoire to Bollington.
And, indeed, they put on a very successful first performance of Don
Pasquale in the Arts Centre and then an outstnding performance of Dido
and Aeneas in St Oswald's Church. However, most regrettably the group
has not been able to permanently establish itself and is now considered defunct.
The long established BLOG has a reputation for producing wonderful colourful
musical theatre with no opportunity for comedy overlooked. See
their web page.
