The Vernon Building Society (Poynton) Brass Band is one of the North-West's premiere brass bands.

Delighting audiences throughout the year with original and entertaining concert programmes, the band is a regular prize-winner at contests throughout the country.

Following the bands victory at the Regional Championships in Blackpool in 2016 the band now compete in the Championship Section with some of the finest ensembles in the brass bands world.

The band are currently directed by Stig Mærsk who developed his musical career in Denmark. The band competes some of the ensembles in the brass bands world.

Recent highlights in the bands diary have included:

  • Performing the World Premiere of The Anson. Composed by Jonathan Taylor, The Anson was commissioned by The Anson Engine Museum to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the internal combustion engine.
