roberts1North West Area champion Foden's will team up with Roberts Bakery Band to help raise funds for the Lions Youth Band's trip to the 2019 European Championships in Montreux.

'From Sandbach to Switzerland' on September 23rd will feature music from John Williams to Hans Zimmer and many other great family favourites as the two senior local contesting outfits offer their support for the talented youngsters.

Lions Youth qualified to represent England at the competition after finishing second at the National Youth Brass Band Championships earlier this year, with the youngsters aged between 14 and 18 eager to have the chance to represent their country despite the daunting financial costs involved.

Musical Director Nigel Birch told 4BR: "Lions is about giving young people great opportunities, so to play with bands of the quality of Roberts and Foden's will be an amazing experience as they work so hard to raise the funds for a brass band trip of a life-time."

The concert will be held at Northwich Memorial Hall, 6pm on Sunday 23rd September

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
