COVID-19: Last updated- 18/03/20

All rehearsals for the Longridge Band and the Longridge Youth Band are suspended until further notice. 

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our St. George’s Day Celebration event at Ferrari’s Country House Hotel which was due to be held on Sunday 26th April.  This is following the current government advice to avoid non-essential contact, and following more specific guidelines issued by Brass Bands England.

If you had already purchased your tickets for this event, or the Spring Concert on Saturday 14th March, please contact Sue Newby on 07801486785 to arrange a refund. 

We will post further updates on our website about rehearsals and our involvement in future events as soon as we are able to.

May we take this time to wish all of our members, patrons and supporters the best of health during this difficult time.

Thank you for your continued support,

The Longridge Band
