We are thrilled to announce that Martin Heartfield will lead Newstead Brass to the 2024 Midland Area Championships.

The band is looking forward to utilising the tremendous wealth of experience and energy Martin will be offering, hoping to take the success of the partnership further than last year’s commendable result of fifth place at the 2023 Midlands Area Championships. Newstead Brass will be kickstarting our 50th anniversary year with some incredibly high quality playing and great band sounds!

Martin commented: “I am delighted to be continuing my musical partnership with Newstead Brass and am excited to see what we can achieve working together.”


Our band spokesperson added: “We’re delighted that recent changes have given us the opportunity to work with Martin once again after two exciting contest performances together in 2023. The band respond well to Martin’s input and we’re looking forward to the challenges of Philip Sparke’s Variations on an Enigma.”
