Spring Festival 2017

Great result at Spring Festival 2017

Drighlington Band enjoyed another year at Blackpool's Spring Festival on 13th May, competing in the Senior Trophy against 18 other bands.

The band played off draw number 14 and this year's test piece was Salute to Youth by Gilbert Vinter.

The performance went very well under Duncan Beckley's direction which led to Drighlington being placed in 5th, narrowly missing out on promotion by just one place.

Onwards & upwards, we look forward to competing in the festival once again in 2018 and aiming to do one better and gain promotion to the Senior Cup.
