After the warm temperatures experienced on their recent tour in Brazil, it was back to reality – and the normal Christmas schedule – for the Regent Hall Band. The band fulfilled its annual engagement at the traditional lighting of the Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square. The tree is a gift from the people of Norway and the ceremony was attended by civic dignitaries from Norway and London. As usual, the event attracted a large crowd of people who enthusiastically sang along with the band.
Another regular item of the band’s Christmas agenda is the National Association of Women’s Clubs Carol Concert. As usual, Major John Martin was an excellent compère for this occasion. Members of Women’s Clubs from the home counties enjoyed joining in singing well-loved carols. The year, the program also included an insight into the band’s recent overseas trip, with one or two items that were played during the tour. This concert heralds the start of a busy month of caroling engagements for the band.
