Once again, the band the led the annual Tyne and Wear TUC May Day parade in Newcastle, on Saturday May 5th.
This year the route started at Exhibition Park bandstand, and made its way back into the town centre to finish with a rally at The Monument where the band played Gresford and speakers included Labour MP Laura Pidcock.
Marching and playing is always a challenge, and this event is more challenging than some since the route is often narrow with lots of street furniture such as bollards to avoid. Gillian and Heather led the way and the kept the band safe. We are indebted to friends of the band including Calum for helping out to make sure we put on a good display.
