This will be the first time that he will have conducted Foden's since leaving in May 2000 to take over his current position with Black Dyke. During his time as MD of Foden's, the band became National Champions in 1999 for the first time since 1958, as well as winning consecutive North West Area's in 1998, 1999, 2000 with victories also at Brass in Concert and the French Open.'

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
