Following recent successes, Burbage Band of Buxton has been promoted to the second section for national competitions.
Band conductor Steve Critchlow said: “This is the highest the band has been ranked in living memory, and represents a massive achievement for a band with so many young and home-grown players.”
The senior band recently welcomed three graduates from its junior ranks, Ellie Bagshaw, Charlotte Armett and Milly Critchlow (pictured), who will shortly be joined by fellow graduates Hannah Watson and Aidan Rhode.
