Syston Band is a friendly community 4th section brass band that offers a warm welcome to players of all ages and abilities. We always welcome new members or guest players and are currently looking to recruit Cornets (front row), one Horn, Bass Trombone and any Bass players.
2017 contest results have been good with a most recent Leicester Contest result of 3rd place in November. Earlier in the year the band a credible 3rd place result at the 2017 Oxford Contest in February and an area result that places the band in the top half of the 4th section rankings. This builds on our success of the previous year when we achieved first place at Oxford contest in February followed by an excellent 2nd place in March at the Regional Championships and qualification for the National Finals in September 2016.
We practice at our premises on Syston Park which we fondly refer to as 'The Band Hut'. Feel free to visit us and join in.
Full band practice: Monday 7.45 - 9.45 pm
Training band: Tuesday 7.30 - 8.30 pm
The band undertakes a number of contests including the Midlands area, Leicester and Oxford contests as well as sometimes taking part in entertainment contesting and the famous Whit Friday Marches in Saddleworth. We also have various summer and Christmas concerts and are proud to take part in the Syston Royal British Legion Remembrance event each year. Around Christmas time you are sure to find us lifting the Christmas spirits playing carols around the local town areas.
