So we were asked a month or two back whether we would be able to perform some Christmas carols for Dudley's annual Christmas switch on. We jumped at the chance because we love doing events for our local community and we all love Christmas!
We were asked the perform twice; once in the Churchill sopping centre outside Iceland and then again in Stone street - on stage! Some of our guard and percussion members took the opportunity to be part of brass and play some Christmas carols too! We got crowd appreciation too which is always nice and to hear some children singing along to 'Rudolph the red nose reindeer' made our time up Dudley worth while.
In Stone street we were shocked and some of our members went every excited when we found out that the X-factor favourite Wagner was the guest of honour and who was helping the mayor of Dudley switch on the Christmas Lights. For us this is big as he has been on telly, and we got the chance to perform and to have a chat with him.
We love our community so it was a honour and a privilege to do something like this for the town of Dudley.
