NATIONAL BRASS BAND CHAMPIONSHIPS OF GREAT BRITAIN
On 21/9/13 Moulton 77 travelled to Cheltenham to compete in the 4th Section at the National Brass Band Finals, playing The Malvern Suite, we competed against 19 other bands, and came 17th. To put this into context, over 100 bands competed in the Regionals held across the Country, and 19 qualified for the Finals. We have done very well indeed.
We now look forward to competing in the 3rd Section in 2014.
Following our result at the regionals the band has been promoted to the Third Section. Something the band has been working towards for a few years. Congratulations everyone.
Lets fill those last few missing seats - Solo Cornet, 2nd Euphonium, BB Bass and Percussion.
Moulton 77 Brass Band is extremely pleased to have come 3rd in 2013 Midland Region Qualifying Championships on Sunday 10th March. Playing "A Devon Fantasy" we were the last band to play (17th). We have now qualified for the National Finals in Cheltenham. Last time we got a result like this was 2006!! Well Done to Everyone.

Abington Park Bandstand, (8 August)
Thanks to all those who turned up on Sunday 5th August to listen to the band, it was pouring with rain before we started, but then the sun came out for a couple of hours and it was very hot, we should never have played Blue Skies!!! A big black cloud came over, and we played our last set in the pouring rain, with thunder and lightening!! Nice!!!

Probably the most secure bandroom in the Country, even the band cannot get in!!
