This Gala Concert will feature the Eccles Borough Band giving an entertaining and enjoyable concert programme for all the family. This event is also the culmination of the Brass Band Conductors’ Association Conducting Competition, which will have been taking place throughout the day. The five finalists will each conduct Eccles Borough Band in a concert item in the concert. Whilst the band entertains us the adjudicators will select the winners who will be announced and presented with their prizes at the end of the evening.
