Hyde Band in the Championship Section
2001 saw the band compete for the first time in the National Championship section, in the West of England Regional Championships and finished a creditable eighth out of eleven. A much better result than many pundits expected. Most recently the band performed again at the National Brass Band Finals held in Harrogate in 2007, after qualifying at the West of England Regional Finals yet again. The result was one to be proud of, finishing 8th out of the 17 best first section bands in the country.
