The Band have been playing again at the Locomotion at Shildon for the second weekend and for the second Santa Special weekend. Our newly appointed conductor Peter also made his debut with the Band. This also marked the Band's final two sit down concerts of the Christmas Season as it is two carol jobs to go at Sainsbury's. Sunday also marked the final time in which Michael would be conducting the Band as he returns to sitting down on Principal Cornet as of January. The Band would like to thank Michael for all of the hard work in which he has done over the last 12 years he has been conducting the band.
