3rd Place at the - London and Southern Counties
Area Contest 2019

Another podium finish for the band and Dr David Thornton, (MD for
Brighouse & Rastrick, Grimethorpe Colliery), who lead the band at
this contest playing the fine composition 'Seascapes' by Ray

The band enjoyed working with David who gave insight in to the
preparation and focus to contests from his many years as a player
and MD of a top flight brass band.

Seascapes was the Test Piece for the 1988 National Finals at the
Royal Albert Hall and was the first time Redbridge Brass qualified
the finals conducted then by Graham Chambers.  The band still has
four players who were in the band all those years ago!
