Fulham enjoy Butlins get-away

 Pictures here Fulham Brass Band recently competed at the Butlins Mineworkers Competition in Skegness and had a great time – despite not getting placed this year with the set piece ‘Diamonds’ by Tom Moss. The composer was actually in the hall during our performance and he was very complementary about our musical approach to his music. We hope we will have the opportunity to play more of his music in the near future.Almost 5,000 brass players descended upon Butlins to compete against each other in competitions over 6 sections spanning the entire weekend. Having achieved 3rd place in 2009, Fulham were confident going into this year’s contest but it wasn’t to be our year - achieving 7th out of 15 bands in the same section.
