The band spent the day at the Locomotion in Shildon entertaining the visitors at the unveiling of a new permanent art work featuring the regions brass bands where you scan QR codes on your smart device and it takes you to a video of the band performing a piece of music in their band rooms.
The band went straight from the Locomotion to Wolsingham to take part in the inaugural Wolsingham 400 Battle Of The Bands Contest, we are pleased, and proud, to announce that we were crowned Battle Of The Bands Champions for 2014. All of the hard work paid off.
A Very hot but absolutely fantastic long day today at the Durham Miners Gala. Highlight was the opportunity to play in Durham Cathedral. We would like to say a massive thank you to Wardle Anderson Band for coming up to play with us and to all the usual players that came on the day. It was a pleasure as always.
Tonight saw a small group from the band perform at Bedburn Hall near Hamsterley Forest. This was a high profile event to which the band gave a very creditable performance.
