Legendary Glory Days of Glossop School Brass Band

The Glossop School Band was born in 1964; it then consisted of four second hand instruments and three players and progress over the next six years was steady rather than spectacular. By the start of the 1970's the number had grown sufficiently to attempt contests and their results from then were truly spectacular thus starting a period over the 70s and 80s that became its 'Glory Days'. Contest victories came frequently with success in the Radio Manchester Blow-By-Blow competition, Radio Stoke 'Knock-Out Brass', both of which were competitions for adult bands and almost total dominance in The Imperial Youth Championships. They even had success against the elite of the banding world in the Whit Friday March Competitions.
