SKELMERSDALE Prize Band took part in the Whit Friday 2022 contest and won four first places, two second places and one third place.
This meant they were crowned winners of the ‘third section’ championships overall in the Tameside contests. Musical director Ben Coulson said: “I am so proud of my band, and how hard they’ve worked in preparation for this contest.
“Whit Friday is a test of physical and mental stamina, and the only way you can succeed is by working as a team which we’re consistently proving we do.”
The band are currently enjoying a busy schedule of summer concerts and their next outing is the Ainsdale Show on July 2.
