Aldbourne Band claims the Senior Trophy at Blackpool's Spring Festival

David Johnson and Aldbourne claimed yet another 2011 Berlioz inspired victory in the Senior Trophy – this time with a performance of 'Benvenuto Cellini' that adjudicator Stan Lippeatt described as 'exceptional' in his summing up remarks prior to the announcement of the results.

The Winter Gardens in Blackpool rang to the sound of cheers as Aldbourne Band went on stage to receive the Senior Trophy at the Spring Festival.

Just a few months ago, Dave had led the band to victory on 'Le Carnival Romain' in the First Section at the West of England Regional Championships in Torquay, and was as equally thrilled by his latest success.

"It's all about ambition for this band," David Johnson said as he held aloft the Senior Trophy.  "This band has got it, and so have I - and we want to realise it together.  I thought we played brilliantly today - and I couldn't have asked for anything more from the players. 

"This was about our desire to improve and compete at the highest level.  We still have a long way to go, but we will get there if we continue to play as well as this."

Chairman James Sheppard said: “It was a fantastic reward for all the hard work and commitment shown by all the players, and the help and support from their families and Friends of the Band. 

"We now have our sights firmly set on the National Finals at Cheltenham on 25th September.  There is a coach for supporters and the spaces are limited so do contact Gavin Dixon on telephone 01672 541204 to book your place!”

The Band are looking forward to the forthcoming series of popular outdoor Pond Concerts held in the village of Aldbourne on the first Sunday of June, July, August and September.  These concerts are family friendly, informal and great fun. If it is wet the concerts will commence in St Michael’s church.
