MARSDEN Silver Prize Band are celebrating after winning the Senior Trophy for the second time in three years at the Spring Brass Band Festival in Blackpool.
The championship band brought home the trophy after competing at the Winter Gardens in the seaside resort last weekend. They were conducted by Glynn Williams.
Adjudicators Derek Broadbent and David Roberts judged the Marsden band to be well ahead of the competition and made them clear winners of the 20 strong field.
The musicians will celebrate the win at a social evening in the bandroom tomorrow but then it is back to rehearsals in preparation for the All England International Masters Brass Band Championships in Kettering next weekend (May 29).
