‘Set up in 2012 to give young musicians a chance of gaining substantial funding to help them continue their musical studies. The bursary is going into its fourth competition and in 2018 the prize fund available will be £18,000. The bursary competition takes place every two years, and runs over a course of rounds in the form of a video entry followed by two live performances. Since the first competition in 2012, the bursary has been continuously growing - expanding its range to include surrounding cities, but whilst still encouraging the local musicians that are at the core of the bursary's foundation.’ Eligibility ’Aged 17 to 21 years ... All who live within a 30 mile radius of The Colne Muni.’

'During World War Two, brass bands in the Burnley area lacked support. But with the help of Colonel Parkinson with instruments and musicians from local bands, they formed the Burnley Home Guard Band. The Band continued after the war, and because the band was formed from an alliance of many bands, in 1951 its name was changed to the Burnley Alliance Silver Band.  The Band is totally self supporting, and presently has 25 regular players ... The band is happy to welcome new players & take bookings.'
