The Black Dyke Band is the most recorded band in the world, with over 350 recordings, and growing every year. It is also the World’s most successful contesting band, having won the European Championships thirteen times, most recently in 2015, the British Open no fewer than 30 times (most recently 2014), and the National Championships of Great Britain 23 times (most recently 2014). In 2009, and again in 2011, 2012 and 2013, the band became Champion Band at the English National Championships and were named English National Champions in 2014, by virtue of having won the National Brass Band Championships in October 2014.
The Black Dyke Band is proud of its past achievements and heritage, but also looks forward with enthusiasm and confidence. No other ensemble in the world of music can boast such a record of innovation and success, meaning, without a doubt, that this concert is definitely not one to be missed.
