It is with extremely heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Lions Youth Brass Musical Director, Nigel Birch.

No words could ever do justice to the amount of hours and hard work that Nigel put into our organisation.

Nigel was our Musical Director for 35 years. He loved each young person that came through Lions as an individual and only ever wanted to see them shine.

He enjoyed all concerts and competitions, but he absolutely loved going on tour, socialising with the players and getting to know them better. He cherished every moment spent with the committee, who he was very proud to call his friends.

We send our heartfelt condolences to Helen, Charlotte, Frankie and the rest of Nigel’s family.

Rest in peace Nigel, thank you for the music 💜
