The Lewes, Glynde and Beddingham Band (LGB Brass for short) will be presenting a concert to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War at 3pm on Sunday, July 20, at Lewes Town Hall.

The concert is free, thanks to the Mayor of Lewes Cllr Micheal Turner, and there will be a retiring collection in aid of the Royal British Legion.

The band, the current Third Section National Champions of Great Britain, will play a range of music, some of it of the period and some more modern but with a relevant theme. As well as featuring some of LGB Brass’s soloists, the Training Band will also take part in their own right. They’ll be playing some pieces during the first half of the concert.

The guest list is impressive – with the Lord-Lieutenant of East Sussex, High Sheriff of East Sussex, High Sheriff of West Sussex, Chairman of East Sussex County Council, Norman Baker MP and the Director of Music of the Band of The Gurkhas all in attendance.

The retiring collection will be received by Mr Jack Neill, representing the RBL.
