The Halifax Boys’ Brigade/Girls’ Brigade Band enjoyed success at a recent outing in Barnsley.

It won five out of the eight categories at the British Youth Band Association competition. The band competes in Division Three of the BYBA and is enjoying a brilliant year.

Since January, the band have been working hard on a production of “Grease” and drum instructor Robert Batty said the hard work was paying off.

“The kids’ are great and work hard all the time. What they do and how much they have achieved is inspirational,” he said.

The band competed in Barnsley against Doncaster Scouts and Comets Performance Ensemble.

It will compete in the BYBA finals in October.
