A BOLTON brass band has been praised in the House of Commons.
Bolton West MP Julie Hilling praised Wingates Band on their 140 years in operation.
She said: “It is a great achievement that a band in Bolton West is celebrating such an important milestone. It is of great credit to everybody who has been involved in every aspect since the band’s formation and it will be a privilege for me to attend the anniversary celebrations.”
The band’s 140th anniversary concert will take place on Saturday at 7.30pm, at Victoria Hall in Bolton.
The concert will also mark the official launch of From Bible Class to World Class, a book about the group’s 140 year history — which has involved 20 years of research by author, David Kaye.
Tickets for the event are available from the Bolton Albert Hall Box Office on 01204 334400 or by post from David Kaye on 01204 696984.
