This is the place to come for videos of the bands in action during rehearsals, concerts, contests and annual tours.
We are so excited to finally have our own storage container! A huge thank you to Tony at Cooke Containers Ltd and caretaker Gary for having the patience of a Saint!
A massive thank you to Ewan at Acceler8 Clinical Research for helping us fund a brand new storage container for the band, without you this wouldn’t have been possible. We’re really looking forward to a joint concert with Acceler8 Band in the new academic year!

This morning, the band was rudely awakened by the morning chorus – no, it’s not the sound of the birds; more the din of the pan lids Brian hit to great effect.
The bands destination today, was the picturesque setting of Llandudno, and the band was treated to the luxury of two hours free time! The band split into groups and enjoyed this time in many ways including hillside tobogganing, retail therapy and skimming stones on the beach.
The band performed on the bandstand on the promenade, to a very supportive and enthusiastic crowd including, ex-band members, friends and even their music teacher!
The band was treated to a BBQ extravaganza in the evening, with hot dogs and cheese burgers on the menu. This went down very well with the band, we also wolfed down the toasted marshmallow and melted chocolate desert.
The band was then assigned two tasks, including marching to Derek’s rather makeshift snare drum and also designing and styling the new CD that band is planning to record next year – more details will follow I’m sure!
Overall, another busy day on an eventful tour!
