LITTLEPORT Brass Band hit the top spot beating 16 groups from across Southern England to win the regional Brass Band championships at Stevenage on March 15.

The band will now head in their purple blazers to Harrogate to challenge bands from across the country.

Iwan Fox, of specialist brass website Four Bars Rest, said of the performance:

"Littleport Brass, conducted by Neil Bramley deservedly took the golden apple prize of the title with a performance of colour, atmosphere and style that perhaps deserved to win by slightly more than just the one point margin from adjudicator Steve Pritchard-Jones."

The band has been improving steadily, coming 12th in 2006 and third last year.
