Long Eaton Silver Prize Band

Senior Band

Band Logo

The Long Eaton Silver Prize Band is lead by the group's Musical Director Sharon Stansfield and currently consists of 44 players, aged between 7 and 84 years.

The band rehearses in our club every Wednesday (except between Christmas and New Year) between 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. The band currently competes in the second section and was Midlands Area and National Third Section Champions in 2006. In 2012 the band came second in the third section at the Midlands Area and qualified for the National Finals again.

The band welcomes any new players who have moved into the area and are looking for a band to join. We also encourage members of our training band to join us, which is why we have so many players!

The band gives a number of concerts each year, mainly in Long Eaton and the surrounding area. The band uniform is white shirt/blouse, black bow tie, black trousers/skirts and black socks and shoes. The band provides walking out and concert jackets and a band tie.
