The band competed in their first contest of the season on Sunday 28th June at Himley Hall in the West Midlands.
With great comments and great scores the band walked away taking the Championship Class. This was a great result as the contest band this year also contains a large group of young players who have just moved up from the Junior band.
The TYMBA contest is run alongside the Dudley Borough Armed Forces Day with the band then taking part in the Beat Retreat ceremony alongside The Band of The Royal Air Force Regiment and West Midlands Fire Service Band.
A great day was had by all and a great start to the TYMBA contest season.
2015 is looking like another busy year for the band with bookings in the diary already for a events in December!

The band was out in force again for the Greater Manchester Contest and once again both bands performed brilliantly and really showing the improvements that all the hard work is generating.
The Junior band lead the way with a very confident performance and some great comments from the judges. It’s really great to know that the band has a strong future with the pool of talent in the Junior Band. They picked up a Bronze award which was really well deserved.
The Senior band then took to the arena and adapted to their new indoor surroundings by bringing home a 1st place in Turnout and Wind and a 2nd place in GME which was enough to secure a 3rd place overall.
The band now looks forward to competing in the TYMBA National Championships at Fenton Manor on 26th October.
