Oldham Band (Lees) is celebrating after an inspired performance of the classic test piece, Gilbert Vinter's James Cook, Circumnavigator, saw them finish 3rd in the Senior Trophy at the 2016 Spring Festival held in Blackpool on Saturday 14 May. The result sees the band promoted to the Senior Cup for the first time. MD John Collins said: "The band has worked so hard in the lead up to this contest and it has paid off with a wonderful result. The piece was deceptively challenging but everyone has really enjoyed bringing the story to life in the music. I am so proud of the band and can't wait for next year!"
Full results can be found on the British Open website
