At the end of September we played at the National Brass Band Finals at Cheltenham Racecourse. We knew that we were playing in the afternoon so had a rehearsal at 10am and waited in anticipation for the draw at 1pm. However we weren't expecting to be drawn 17/18 so after a lot of coffee and hanging around we went on stage and played the test piece 'Ghosts, Goblins witches and Wizards by Darrol Barry at 8.30pm!!! By the time we had changed it was results time and although we were happy with our performance, the hanging around took its toll. Or so we thought! When our name was read out as a placed band we were ecstatic. the 6th best band in the second section but best of all, the best second section band of the midland area!!
