The end of an incredible era

It was truly the end of an era as Ted Thomas retired recently after an unprecedented 70 years playing trombone with Band. Ted joined the band in 1951 at the age of 19 so celebrates his 89th birthday tomorrow Monday 6th September 2021. He joined the band for their 2021 Summer Concerts photocall on Thursday 2nd September 2021 and can be seen below in the front row next to Phil Cleave our current MD.

Rusty but good to be back !

Indoor Practice at last – the road to recovery last night (24th May) – Masks when not playing, 2m apart, bellcovers and behind tables to assure social distancing. Jurassic Park, Barnard Castle, Song for the Frontline, Abide with me, Great Escape and My Way for those that need to catch up, see you Thursday. Thanks everyone for being compliant.
