Barton Community Band was formed in 2009 to give retired Bandsmen the opportunity to get back into the bandroom, and to aid the development of up and coming musicians from the Youth Organisation.
In 2012 the Community Band took the opportunity to compete and entered Fourth Section North of England Championships.
This being the first time on a contest stage for many of the players they walked away with a very creditable 5th, a position they repeated the following year. However, at the 2014 Championships, they were awarded fourth place. Excellent progress.
