History - The present and future

The Present and Future (2000 and beyond)

Harborough Band now sits in the first section of the brass band contesting tables, and has enjoyed its most successful period for a long while. The band has in the last 10 years been to the national finals 3 times, once in 2001 to Preston where we came 6th, and then again in 2007 and 2008 when the band travelled up to Harrogate having come second in the Regional Area contests in both years.

The new millenium has also seen the band move into permanent premises at Welland Park Community College, thanks to the efforts of Mark Stamp, the band president. We now have our own store cupboard at ground level, and use of the school music room for rehearsals. This move has not only added stability to the band, but enabled the Training and Senior Bands to come together again in the same premises, enabling links between the 2 bands to grow.
