Brighouse & Rastrick Band Christmas Concert

Christmas Event

Description

The ever popular Brighouse and Rastrick Band caught the ears and imagination of the British public with their recording of The Floral Dance holding the No.2 position in the British singles chart for 9 weeks. Even though they were held off the top spot by Paul McCartney, they still achieved sales of over a million, earning both Gold and Silver discs. The Floral Dance has now become a permanent feature of the band’s programs as the unofficial encore.

The Brighouse & Rastrick Band is regarded by many as the best and most consistent public subscription band in the world. In its time the majority of premier band championships have been held by ‘Briggus’, most recently becoming National Champion Band of Great Britain in 2017, whilst the band has also attracted a formidable reputation for highly entertaining concerts for both the general public and brass band connoisseur.

The band was formed 140 years ago in 1881 through public donations given by the townsfolk of the adjacent villages of Brighouse and Rastrick that face each other across the River Calder in West Yorkshire. Today, it still continues to be supported through public subscriptions and its own fundraising efforts.
