Brian Heyes

The Assistant Principal Cornet seat sponsored by Sheila Beswick

Brian joined Leyland in 1987 and lays to claim to the very unique accolade of having played at a contest with Leyland on every seat in the cornet section, including Soprano!

He has a reputation for being a high note specialist and is well known for his technical flair and ‘unsympathetic’ sound – lovingly christened by Richard Evans many years ago.

Outside banding, Brian is a massive Preston North End fan and has a successful Commercial Banking career with HSBC in Preston, which brings fantastic expertise to his Treaurer’s role at the band.

He lives in Leyland with his girlfriend Laura and little boy Jacob.
