Yesterday we marched the Eppleton Lodge banner into Durham for the 134th Durham Miners Gala. It was an absolutely fantastic day with a brilliant atmosphere. We managed to get some great live videos of “Gresford” and “Disney & Friends” but we would love it if anyone who took videos or photos of us could share them with us.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who helped us out yesterday, whether they were playing an instrument or helping carry gear and water, you know who you are and the band really appreciated the support.
If you saw the band yesterday you might also have noticed that we have modernised our uniforms. For the first time yesterday we donned our new purple polo shirts making a change from wearing shirts and ties at the Gala, and we were all very thankful of this due to the blistering temperatures.
