Open Qualification

For the first time in the Band’s History, Tongwynlais Temperance Band have qualified for the British Open Brass Band Championship to be held in Birmingham Symphony Hall on 4th September.

Considered the best competition in the world, the band are extremely proud of this achievement and look forward to taking our place in the competition to line up with the best bands in the world.

A lot of hard world has gone into making this possible by so many people but without the dedicated preparation and attention to detail of Philip Harper none of this would have been possible. The band would like to take this opportunity to thank Philip and congratulate him on a fantastic achievement.

Finally the committee would like to thank each member of the band for what could arguably be the greatest achievement for Tongwynlais Temperance Band thus far. Each and every member has been selfless in their dedication and should take the plaudits and congratulations as we look to build on this for the future.
