Tickets for The Fairey Band at Stockport Plaza
Faireys return to the Plaza in June and their programme will include a performance of Tchaikovsky’s crowd rousing1812 Overture which will combine the band’s technical prowess with spectacular cannon effects.
Founded in 1937 at the Fairey Aviation Works in Stockport, the Band achieved many musical successes under the direction of the late, great Harry Mortimer. Since those early days Fairey can boast an unrivalled set of results at the British Open being crowned Champions 16 times, more than any other band during this period.
In addition the Band has been National Champions of Great Britain on 9 occasions and had victories at the European Championships, the All England Masters and the English Nationals..
Faireys has also been featured many times on television and radio. At the end of 2015 the band provided background music for BBC2’s “Great Pottery Throw Down”.
