Today we sat down together as a band for the first time in 14 months and played music! We were outside and there had to be no more than 30 of us but it was great to be playing again. We look forward to more outdoor rehearsals and then being able to go back inside again, we don’t have any engagements booked in yet but we hope to be back on track very soon.

It’s with great sadness that today we heard the news that our Drum Major John Gooding has passed away after an illness. John was always a great friend to the band and many of our musicians. A few years ago after a lot of deliberation we wanted to do more high profile engagements, to do this we decided to become a marching band. We were then booked to do Lincolnshire Show 2016, something the band has always wanted to do. Some of the band are from military backgrounds and some had marched before but our first few Sunday morning rehearsals were a little ropey, to say the least! Then,...

Well it’s been the strangest year the band has ever experienced, not one concert or performance carried out all year thanks to the pandemic. However, the band has managed to keep things going by producing several online productions and we’ve tried to keep in touch with each other by holding weekly zoom meetings/quiz nights on Thursday’s which would normally be our rehearsal nights. We were also able to send Ryan and Kelly, two of our cornet players to Lincoln Castle on Remembrance Sunday to play The Last Post on the castle wall. If you’ve missed our online...

With the current government restrictions in place we have unfortunately been unable to meet to rehearse since March, we have found ourselves cancelling or postponing all of our engagements/booking this year up to now. Everyone is frustrated with the current situation and nobody expected the restrictions to go on this long. We would just like to assure our followers that as soon as it’s declared safe for us to be back together we will be, stronger than ever.
