Chris began his relationship with the Friary Brass Band as Musical Director in 2006. During his tenure, the band has had repeated contest success including victory at the 2010 First Section National Championships and the 2014 Senior Trophy, L&SC champions in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 as well as qualification for the National Brass Band Championships in the Royal Albert Hall on the last six successive years.
