Members of the band once again took part in the London Lord Mayors show on Saturday 9th November as part of the National Youth Marching Band.
Meeting at 3:15am the band members boarded the coach to head to central London for the day. The band were greeted with a cup of tea and a sticky bun before heading to the start of the parade where it was pouring down with rain.
Spirits were not dampened by the rain, partly being spurred on by having the band of HM Royal Marines behind them.
Unfortunately coverage on the BBC did not show the band to the full potential however the sound was fantastic, with a comment made by the parade marshal about how impressed he was with the quality of playing the band demonstrated.
Tired and cold the band members boarded the coach to return to Cleckheaton but once again an enjoyable experience was had by all.
Well done to all band members who took part, you were a credit to both the band and Spen Valley District.
