Cleobury Mortimer Concert Brass is a band straight out of the ‘Shire’, with our base being the Parish Hall in the sleepy town of Cleobury Mortimer, but don’t let its lethargic origin’s mislead you…
After making a return to the competition circuit, CMCB were 4th Section Champions at Wychavon in 2011, National Finalists at Cheltenham in 2012 and in March 2014, made our debut in the 3rd Section at the Midlands Areas. In 2016 we were crowned 4th section Midlands Champions and went on to take 2nd at the National Brass Band Championships.
2017 was another exciting year, with a 3rd at the Midland Areas and another trip to Cheltenham. 2018 saw us promoted to the third section with a 3rd place in the Midland Areas, and another appearance at Cheltenham for the National Finals.
2019 and 2020 has appearances at the Regional Finals, gaining promotion to the second section in the process.
2021 welcomes Matthew Ludford-King to the stand to lead CMCB see out of their enforced hiatus, however following a few months of blowing out the cobwebs, CMCB are as strong as ever and looking forward to getting back to the bandstand.
You can find us practising on Tuesday evenings at Cleobury Mortimer Parish Hall where you more than welcome to join us. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, you're welcome in the bandroom.
