Band Honours

Fairlop have entered Brass Band competitions since the very early days of the band. Arguably the band's greatest achievement so far has been winning the National Brass Band Championships (3rd Section) in October 1995. But they have always impressed. This is a band that has achieved some amazing results when you consider that the band retains a core of players that were in the founding Junior school band, that they only practice once a week, and that they are willing to give chances to beginner musicians so readily...
