The successful musical link between Milnrow Band and Musical Director Mark Bentham has come to end.
The mutual decision concludes a four year partnership that saw the championship band claim the 2017 All England International Master title, come runner-up in the same year at the North West Area Championship and claim multiple victories at the popular Rochdale Contest.

Band Manager Frances Thewlis told 4BR: "We would like to publicly thank Mark for his hard work and commitment over the past four years.
His faultless dedication to the band means we are now in an exciting position to shape our future and work towards a successful 2019 and beyond."
It is understood that the band is currently in the process of appointing a new conductor, with an announcement to be made in due course.
