Remembrance Sunday

Cenotaph

The morning of Sunday November 11th 2012 was crisp and bright and once again the Band led the parade of veterans to the cenotaph for the Remembrance Day service.

It is, of course, always a sombre occasion and the band contributed suitable music before, during and after the service itself before marching the parade past the saluting dais and through the usual big crowds in Bournemouth Square.

As is now customary, all the Corps sections took part in "A Night To Remember" on Sunday evening.

Night to Remember

This was the end of the week that also saw the Band commence their Christmas programme with a visit to the Arlington Hotel for "Boxing Day" carols as part of the first Turkey and Tinsel events. Many people were returning to the hotel having been at the same type of event in previous years - so they were also well practiced in the singing of carols with the Band.

The Band only have another four "Boxing Days" to go before starting into the 'real' Christmas celebration with our annual Christmas concert at Christchurch Priory.
