A local band is celebrating a string of positive results which has seen its members given a great cause of optimism.

The Flixton Band brought home a third place trophy in the last context of 2019, the culmination of a year of hard work and impressive performances. This follows last month’s first section victory at the Blackburn and Darwen contest.

The band will be jumping into the rehearsal room again very soon and are putting on a festive concert with Flixton Community Band at St Clement’s Church in Urmston on Friday, December 6 at 7.30pm.
