The Fairey band, which exists over more than a hundred years, was founded by a group of employees at the Fairey Aviation Works in Stockport. In recent years, the Band has enjoyed further recognition outside the confines of the Brass Band movement, with its involvement in the ‘Acid Brass’ project. Under this banner, the Band has been able to display its flexibility in adapting to a totally different musical concept and consequently, has performed in rock/pop festivals in the UK and overseas.
