Around the world Foden's Band is a trademark that musicians associate with inestimable class and musicianship. This fact is reflected in the wide variety of countries that the band has toured; Italy, Switzerland, America, Ireland, France, Norway, Finland and Israel to name but a few.
The association which Foden's has with the most respected and renowned conductors, Bramwell Tovey, Allan Withington, Howard Snell and Michael Fowles has developed the band's ever increasing repertoire and also their standards to unprecedented levels as well as allowing them to provide audiences with musically aesthetic performances as well as stepping outside the boundaries of the usual brass band concert repertoire.
In 2012 Foden's set up a youth band to nurture the very best youth musicians in the area to become the future of the brass industry. The Foden's solo competition (held annually in November and staffed by players of the band) regularly attracts over 170 players from around the world to compete against each other at the highest level.
