The Band will be performing for their first time, the 2014 production of Beatles!
Halifax BBGB has gone back in time from the 70's with their last years Grease production to this years 1960's production of the Beatles. Over the winter the Band has managed to recruit some new members to the band who will be performing the 2014 Show for the very first time along side some of the more experienced members. They have all worked really hard to get this far, but the journey isn't over yet!
The Band would like to thank the Instructors who are not only stepping in for the Northern Preview, but who have given their time this Season so that the Band can once again be out on the BYBA Circuit.
The Band has had a busy start to the year Marching the Mile for Sport Relief and joining Revolution Show Corps at the Bradford St Georges Day and they're all looking forward to a fantastic year with BYBA!
Halifax BBGB wish all Bands the best of luck for 2014 and they look forward to seeing some familiar faces on the competition field!

On Sunday 23rd March, the Band set out on a Mile Long Challenge, raising money for Sport Relief.
The Band Marched and Played around Lister Park in Bradford performing along side around 400 other runners. Just over 20 minutes after setting off, the Band crossed the finish line playing Heart of Oak.
After a quick receiving the medals and a goodie bag, the band picked up their instruments one more time to entertain the crowd.
The Band would like to congratulate the New members who marched their first parade, and also thank those who stepped in to help us out!
You all know who you are!
