Awards for All

The Long Eaton Silver Prize Band is a friendly community based brass band organisation, comprising of three groups (our senior and training bands and a beginners' group) totalling 90 players, which promotes and encourages live music within the borough of Erewash and the surrounding areas. Our primary objective is to encourage and provide opportunities for people all ages to play or learn a musical instrument, targeting young and disadvantaged groups. We raise musical and cultural awareness through a variety of local concerts, charitable events and contests. The senior band currenty contests in the second section and was Midlands Area and National Champions in third section in 2006.

In 2012 , the band qualified for the National Finals again by finishing runner-up at the Midlands Area Championships and also gained promotion back to the second section.
