On the 31st October Foden's Band will once again host their annual Solo Contest to be held at Sandbach Boys School

Speaking about the forthcoming event Mark Wilkinson commented 'As in previous years we are extremely pleased with the interest shown with over 120 entries received across the various sections with competitors travelling from as far as Belgium and Holland to compete in the largest event of its kind in the country. Despite the large number of entries in the brass sections we have received a limited response to the various percussion sections. Due to this we are extending the closing date (just for percussion) to the 27th October. There are a variety of percussion sections including under 16 tuned, open tuned, under 16 un tuned, open un tuned and open ensemble (2 or more)'

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
