Last Sunday Wingates Band competed in Blackburn & Darwen band’s Hymn & March contest, sponsored by Darwen Town Council. The band knew it was important to maintain a consistency of form, following recent Hymn & March contest success. The band was drawn 8th out of a field of 18 bands from across all sections and we hoped that our formula of “Love Unknown” & “The Wizard” would prove yet again to be a winning combination…. It was! The band was awarded the Best Hymn Tune and Overall Winner prizes taking home 2 trophies and prize money of £850.
We must congratulate Blackburn & Darwen band members as they ensured everything ran smoothly and thank them for organising a great show. Further photos from the day can be found on their flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/bnd_band/
