Wow! Our first public performance! 12 children from the 3 Primary Schools came with their families to Whitley Bay on Friday afternoon to take part in North Tyneside’s Christmas Lights switch-on event.

We played our arrangement of Carol of the Drum, twice through, and played it again once through as an encore at the end of our slot. Natalie started the rhythm going on the drum and Gavin conducted the children using a big board with the notes written out. Many thanks to the members of Backworth Colliery Band who came to support the children and play some carols.

There are 2 videos on our YouTube channel so far:
