Nick ChildsFollowing last years victory at the North West Area Foden's have confirmed that Prof Nicholas Childs has once again been engaged to defend their title on the 26th February.

The Black Dyke Director of Music makes a welcomed return to Foden's where he was a former player before returning as Musical Director in 1997 until 2000. During his tenure as Musical Director at Foden's the Welshman led them to the 1999 National title, as well as a trio of North West Regional victories and success at the Brass in Concert Championship, French Open and Harry Ramsden entertainment event — the richest contest in the banding calendar at the time. 

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
