The Ruddick Arts Centre, Edgbaston was the venue for the commencement of Birmingham Citadel Band’s 125th Anniversary celebrations on Saturday, 22 September 2018. A weekend which, as it progressed, conjured up many happy memories of the band’s consistent ministry in Birmingham and further afield over the years.
On 4 February 2017, the Birmingham Citadel Band (Bandmaster Gavin Lamplough) presented “The Best of British”, a proms-style program. The program was repeated during the band’s visit to Gainsborough a month later.
Birmingham Citadel Band (Bandmaster Gavin Lamplough) has been privileged to make several recordings in recent years, and the lovely building of St. Michael’s Church in Boldmere was the setting for their latest sessions, held 30 September – 1 October 2016.
