Hadstock take prize pair

Hadstock Silver Band recently enjoyed their appearance at the East Anglian Brass Band Association Contest.

 

Hadstock Silver Band recently secured not one, but two prizes after promotion to the A Section of the East Anglian Brass Band Association Spring Contest in Norwich.

Two prizes

The band gained first prize in the A Section Hymn Tune section and 2nd place in the entertainments section of the contest. Last year Hadstock returned to competition after a 15 year break absence.

To return to a contest promoted to a higher section was achievement enough, but to come away with two prizes was quite literally a dream come trueMD, Lisa Jardine-Wright

Thrilled

Lisa Jardine-Wright, the band's MD was thrilled with the result and told 4BR: "To return to a contest promoted to a higher section was achievement enough, but to come away with two prizes was quite literally a dream come true."

After last year's triple victory the village band continues to thrive. The band's chairman, Andrew Jardine told 4BR: "Last year I said, we hope now that the only way is up. I didn't realise that 'up' would happen so quickly."

Grown

Hadstock was founded over 140 years ago and until last year was unable to enter competitions due to a lack of players. However, by the end of 2008 through the appointment of a new musical director and connections with other local bands Hadstock Silver Band had grown sufficiently to consider contesting once again.
