Full Tintwistle Band (2nd Section) are looking to appoint a new Musical Director for January 2019 as their current MD of 8 years, Sarah Groarke-Booth is standing down to pursue pastures new.

Under Sarah the band have delivered an excellent standard of concerts with a wide variety of entertaining programmes, something the band are keen to maintain. 2018 saw the band achieve a 3rd place at the Midlands area, second place at Hardraw Scar entertainment contest (with best hymn and soloist too) and a number of prizes at Whit Friday. The band are members of the NWABBA but as their base (SK13 1LH) is in Derbyshire (on the A628 some 15 miles from Manchester City centre) are oblige to attend the Midlands areas.

The band own their bandroom, with a well-stocked and constantly updated music library. Well attended rehearsals are held on Monday & Thursday evenings and barring a couple of cornet vacancies the band has a full and committed membership. The band and Sarah part as friends, and the band wish to place on record their grateful thanks to Sarah for her hard work these last 8 years but look forward to welcoming someone new to lead them on their next musical adventure.
