The return of the formidable ‘Briggus’
From the West Ridings of Yorkshire comes the Brighouse and Rastrick, current National Champion Band of Great Britain, and one of the most popular and successful bands in the world.
Reaching No.2 in the charts in the 1970s with their recording of The Floral Dance, they have more recently recorded with leading vocalists as diverse as Joy Askew, Liza Pulman and The Unthanks. Their Snape Prom programme celebrates the full range of their musical heritage with marches, hymns and virtuosic showpieces for their star soloists, and highlights from the world of grand opera and classical music.
