Tour 2017: Day One

Charlotte Birch : 22 July 2017 9:00 am : Gallery, News, Tour, Youth Band

Lions Youth Brass at Llandudno Town Hall

 

On Friday, we set off at 8am from Sandbach Common. This was the start of tour 2017!

The coach was filled with excitement as we started our trip to North Wales.

When we arrived, some of the boys decided to play football. However, this didn’t turn out to be the best idea ever! Yes, just an hour after we arrived Jakob fell over and broke his wrist. Despite this the boys decided to carry on playing anyway.

After the eventful game of football, Nigel called us through for a rehearsal in the main room. At the end of the rehearsal Emily, our Flugel Horn player, was surprised with not one, not two, but three birthday cakes.

As we packed the kit away Jakob returned from the hospital with his arm in a plaster cast.

Then the nightmare of setting up the bedding kicked in! Like a giant jigsaw we crammed 41 band members, plus adults, into the room.  Nigel, Brian and Derek were spoilt with five star luxury (aka a bed) in their own wing of the building.

Later on we had our opening concert at Llandudno Town Hall. Emily was surprised again by the band playing Happy Birthday!

We presented Martin from Llandudno Lions with one of our commemorative bannerette to round of day one of Lions Youth Brass on tour!

New LBB appointments

Chris Thompson : 22 July 2017 5:13 am : News

Lions Beginner Band are delighted to announce the appointment of three Youth Band members to the position of Mentors within the Beginners. 

These new roles will see Hannah Taylor (cornet), Abbie Webb (horn) and Daya Gill (euphonium) (all former LBB members) perform with the Beginners in all their concert engagements throughout the year. 

We are looking forward to seeing them work with the band and are sure that their enthusiasm, drive and ability will play a key role in helping to boost the confidence of our youngest members when they are on stage.
