Woodfalls Victorious at Centenary Wessex Contest

Coming 1st in The March Competition with Keighley Moor and 1st with our test piece choice of Edward Gregson’s Of Distant Memories, our return to the contest stage was a successful one.

The Centenary Contest is a landmark for The Woodfalls Band having won the first Wessex Contest in 1922, fifty years later in 1972 and now in 2022!

The Band has worked hard over the last few weeks and are pleased that all of the hard work has achieved success on Contest Day!

Thanks go to all band members and our MD Stephen Sykes for getting the winning performance out of the band.

We send congratulations to all other prize winners and look forward to seeing many of the other bands at contests in 2023. Thanks also to The Wessex Brass Band Association for another enjoyable day of banding.

You can see the band next at St Mary’s Church, Beaminister on 10th December, for an afternoon Christmas Concert starting at 3.30 p.m.
