Following a very successful 2016 under the direction of our MD Chris Banks, the band is now busy preparing for this years' competition season.  A first place at Oxford contest in February 2016 followed by an excellent 2nd place at the Regional Championships and qualification for the National Finals the band is hopeful of continuing success already achieving a credible 3rd place result at the 2017 Oxford Contest in February.

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 happy to help you improve your playing skills.  We practice at our premises on Syston Park which we fondly refer to as 'The Band Hut'.  
Full band practice: Monday 7.45 - 9.45 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.
A 2nd trombone player would complete a full band of regular players.
