The Morley March... Marches On!

The Morley March is making its return this year after a 2 year break

It will kick off at 12.30pm and will comprise a road march along the pedestrianised Morley Queen Street, followed by the playing of a hymn tune and contest march in the band arena outside the Town Hall.

The contest is open to all bands from Youth to Championship Section. All music is own choice.

Event organiser Geoff Fowler told 4BR: "Our contest has established itself as a prestigious event and any proceeds from the contest go to the Morley & District Lions, which has the support of the Mayor of Morley and the Morley Community Development Committee.

We are delighted to announce that the prize pot is £2000 with prizes available for 'Best' in every section' and a first prize of £600 along with a total of 15 cash prizes and trophies."

Dan Frank, Secretary at Morley & District Lions Club said "We're delighted that the Brass Band Contest is coming back to the streets of Morley.

"We are grateful to Geoff and his family who are working hard to make the event a success and once again helping to support the Morley Lions Club"
