Saturday 13th April 2024
Location: St Canice’s Cathedral
Foden’s were formed in 1902 by Edwin Foden, originally named ‘The Foden’s Motorworks Band.’ From these humble beginnings few would have thought they would go on to win 12 British Open titles, 16 National Championships of Great Britain and an unparalleled double hat-trick in 1932, 33, 34 and in 1936, 37 and 38. The band currently holds the record for the number of Area Contest wins with an unprecedented 26 North West Area titles. Since 1902 they have maintained their positions as one of the World’s leading bands on and off the contest stage.

In 2012 Foden’s won the ‘Double’ being crowned the 2012 British Open / National Champions and in 2018 2021 and 2022 were once again crowned the National Champions. In September 2023 they became the British Open Champions at the Symphony Hall, Birmingham as well as Brass in Concert Champions at the Glasshouse, Gateshead in November 2023. As well as being successful on the contest front the band have won numerous awards for cd releases, regularly appear on BBC TV and Radio and perform at all the countries leading concert halls.

Around the world Foden’s Band is a trademark that musicians associate with inestimable class and musicianship
