BIG and brassy - that is the former Stocksbridge and City of Sheffield Band which has a new name after being sponsored by Britain’s biggest trade union.
And now the Unite the Union Band has captured one of Britain’s biggest prizes after being named Yorkshire Champions. This means the Unite the Union band will now represent Yorkshire at the National finals in September.
John Lee, band chairman, said: “We’re proud to have put on a fantastic show for our sponsors, Unite, for Sheffield and for Yorkshire and look forward to returning to the city in September as national champions. At a time when money from the arts is hard to come by, we are grateful to Unite for its support.”
