Foden's to represent England at the 2022 European Brass Band Championships

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 27 August 2020


In 2018 Foden's became the National Champions of Great Britain at the Royal Albert Hall, London. Part of this prize was an invitation to represent England at the European Brass Band Championships to be held in Palanga, Lithuanian in May 2020. During 2019 the band worked extremely hard to raise £18k to allow the band to participate in this contest. The fundraising including a Beir Keller, 10 piece concert, Grand prize draw, a number of fund-raising concerts as well as some very generous donations. Sadly, the contest was cancelled in March due to Covid, much to the disappointment of the band members.

At the National Finals this year, the highest placed English band at this contest would subsequently be invited to represent England at the 2022 European Championships. Due to the Nationals being cancelled, Foden's are extremely pleased to announce that we have accepted the invitation to represent England at the 2022 Europeans to be held in Innsbruck, Austria.

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
