In “From The Bandroom” this month we visit the Rothwell Temperance band. Originally formed as the Rothwell Temperance Junior band in 1984, they worked their way up through the sections, eventually winning the Yorkshire area championship at St George’s Hall in 2009.
Currently the most successful contesting band in the Leeds area, with one Yorkshire areas and two Grand Shield victories in the last few years, Rothwell are the natural choice for the prestigious Lord Mayor’s Carol Concert at Leeds Town Hall each Christmas.
MD Dave Roberts has put together a superb programme of music for us and we’ll be talking to him and to band members to find out how Rothwell stay at the top of their game.
Just for fun, in the trailer we’ve put three short extracts from the programme. Comment below if you know what they are, and please, no spoilers from the band!
From The Bandroom with the Rothwell Temperance Band, 10pm, Tuesday 22nd October on East Leeds FM.
