Whit Friday   


Our Favourite Day of the year!


In the morning we were proud once again to lead the church procession into Uppermill and back for St Anne's Lydgate and Christ Church Friezland.


In the evening we were excited to take part in the march contests again after a few years absence. We were really proud of our performances playing the march 'Senator', fitting in 8 contests, and were delighted to come away with a couple of prizes:


Best 3rd Section & Best Local (5th Overall) - Lees & Springhead Contest

2nd place - Friezland Contest


A huge thank you for all the support on the day!

We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

North West Area Contest 2024


We had a great day in Blackpool at the Area Contest. Huge congratulations to all the prize winners.


It wasn't the result we were hoping for, but we are so proud to have been able to take part this year and start our rebuilding process.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at Greenfield Brass Band


We had a busy festive season with two great concerts to packed audiences at Manchester Golf Club and Friezland Bowling Club, along with lots of carolling jobs and a pre-Christmas band social.


Thanks for all the support over the last year. See you in 2024!

Concert - Uppermill Con Club


Thank you to everyone who came to our concert at Uppermill Conservative Club, especially those who braved the rain and stayed until the end.


It was our first concert in a while so it was fab to get to get back out there.


We had a great time and hope you did too!








7th Place at the NW Area 2023





The band were really pleased to place 7th out of 18 bands at the regional North West area, 26th February. 


We are heading into the 2023 season in great form at the top of the 3rd section rankings. 


Thank you to everyone for their support over the past few months from all at Greenfield Band!

Jubilee Concert Success!

Greenfield Band’s Jubilee concert at Uppermill Civic Hall to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s 70th year on the throne, was a fantastic success!



Our collaboration with local groups continued as we were supported by Oldham Music Centre Youth Brass Band who sounded in fine form. They gave us a preview of their Whit Friday march, Glemdene, which was a great hit with the audience.



We were delighted that internationally renowned guest soloist, Angelo Bearpark, accepted our invitation for him to come and perform with us. During the concert Angelo played three pieces of varying tone; Harry James Concerto for Trumpet, Carnival of Venice and Solitaire. It was an absolute honour for Greenfield Band to accompany Angelo as he played and was thoroughly enjoyed by all!

The Royal George

5th Place at Area

On 27th February, Greenfield Band took to the stage in Blackpool’s Winter Gardens in our 1st competition since 2019. 


On stage we performed to the very best of our ability and gave a great account of Gordon Langford’s ‘Facets of Glass’ which the adjudicators thought was worthy of a 5th placing out of 15 bands in the 3rd section. 


A special thank you to John Stevenson and Friezland Church, Christ Church who stepped up in our hour of need and allowed us to rehearse  in the church all week as the heating failed in our regular rehearsal room. 


The success of the Winter Concert and the contest result caps off a very positive start to Greenfield Band’s 35th year.


Next on our menu of performances is the Platinum Jubilee Concert in Uppermill Civic Hall on Friday 3rd June, 7:30pm, where we will be joined by Oldham Music Service Youth Brass Band and 1, maybe even 2 international cornet virtuosi soloists as our guests. Details to follow.


The evening before the Jubilee Concert, Thursday 2nd June, we are honoured to have accepted an invitation to play at the beacon lighting above Greenfield at ‘Pots and Pans’. 


Greenfield Band would like to thank you all for your continued support and look forward to seeing you at our future events.


Winter Concert 2022

What a magical lunchtime concert mid February!


Greenfield Brass Band were outstanding and our guests, The Pennine Singers, directed by Liz Brocklehurst, performed beautifully with a carefully selected mixture of sacred and secular music, all of which was a cappella. Bravo!


Thank you to Friezland Church, Christ Church for hosting our event and also a big shout out to all the volunteers who helped and to those who made all those delicious homemade cakes. 


Thanks also to Dennis' good friend Daniel Brooks for coming along to assess our performance of Facets of Glass and giving us such a glowing report.


It was a real pleasure to perform in front of a packed church and we are very proud of what we accomplished yesterday.

Greenfield Brass Band will now go forward with confidence in our quest to enhance the cultural calendar of our community.
