Posted by on Nov 17, 2015 | No Comments

During the recent centenary celebrations at the Durham Miners’ Association’s Redhills Headquarters, the band were recorded by BBC Radio 4 for one of the World at One programme’s 50th anniversary features. Celebrating ways in which Britain leads the way, listeners had called in with their requests and brass banding was identified as a tradition that should be cherished. A number of band members, old and young, were interviewed about their experience in banding, and why they felt it was a tradition worth keeping up.

The feature is available for a limited time via iPlayer at
