Friary Hit Top 30!

Friary Guildford Band has achieved yet another milestone by roaring 8 places up the World Rankings (courtesy of to 29th, and regaining the top-ranked spot in London & Southern Counties.

Band Chairman Nigel Stevens was delighted: ‘Only a year ago one of our objectives was to reach the top 40: we managed that quite early on and re-set the measure to reach the top 30. To achieve that so soon in the year is a real boost to our confidence, particularly as we approach the Regional Championships later this month. I’m not sure that we’re ready just yet to raise the bar further to achieving top 20 status, but we certainly aim to consolidate our position and make further progress over the coming year.’
