The line-up also features Brighouse & Rastrick Band who have attracted a formidable reputation for notable triumphs in the highly competitive contesting field and its famous 1977 hit The Floral Dance which won silver and gold discs for massive record sales. Not to mention the world-famous Grimethorpe Colliery Band who received two gold discs as well as a BAFTA nomination for its contributions to the global hit movie Brassed Off. The versatile Fairey Band, Hammonds Band, Flowers Band, GUS Band, and Leeds’ very own Rothwell Temperance Band complete the series.
