“The Village Band” - lecture by David Holland

David Holland truly entertained us with his Brass Band stories and thoroughly educated us in the history of Brass Bands from the 1840s until the present day. David had played in Brass Bands since he was 12 year old - first in a village band, then in the police force and more recently he became conductor for the Haslingden & Helmshore Band and so he was well qualified to tell us all about the history and the instruments that make up a Brass Band.  He had brought along several instruments to show us.  Members were encouraged to ask questions - and indeed they did!
