Yesterday we performed our marching display at the 133rd Lincolnshire Show for the 2nd year running, last year was the first time the band had ever marched and we were very proud to attend the show again this year. The band has been very busy attending extra rehearsals on Sunday mornings leading up to the event and all that hard work really paid off. We marched onto the main arena 4 times during the day for a performance and also provided music around the food and beer tents, we only got wet once!

We need to say a big thank you to some guest musicians who joined us to bump up our numbers in some sections, you know who you are so many many thanks and we hope you enjoyed playing with us. We also need to say a few special thanks to certain people who have spent many hours planning the day. First of all thanks to Ryan our band manager and Alastair our band secretary for working tirelessly over the past few months arranging rehearsals, finding guest players, communications, logistics, meetings and troubleshooting. Thanks to Karen our librarian for spending hours at the laminator ensuring every member of the band had the music they needed. Thanks to Laura our quartermaster for kitting everyone out with a uniform and acquiring extra caps and tunics. Thanks to John our drum major for keeping us all in check out on the parade square and making us look the part on the day, I’m sure most of us were in step most of the time haha. Thanks to all band members and everyone else that helped make yesterday a success.

We are out again tomorrow (Saturday) at armed forces day in Lincoln City Centre at 09.45am to 11am, come down and listen to us.
