Tapton Youth Brass Band is a brass band formed in 1994 in Sheffield, England as the Tapton School band. Its musical director is Pat Phillips. It now attracts interest from outside the School and is known as Tapton Youth Brass Band. We were delighted to a partnership linking the schools work and our working by offering the Tapton Main Hall for the concert.

The atmosphere was fantastic throughout with friends and family members of the band joining in with the fun. The concert managed to raise money to supply the band with new instruments for future concerts.

The director Pat Phillips had a great day and added:

“The reunion and evening concert went really well and we all enjoyed ourselves .  The caretaker, Michael, was fantastic going out of his way to help and did not complain when the concert ran over time. The venue was fantastic and perfect for our concert. The assitance throughout the day was fantastic. Thank you for the support before, during and after the day”
