Every Sunday, from May to September, Victoria Gardens would welcome a brass band from Cornwall to perform in the bandstand.

Sadly, it has been confirmed that no bands will be performing this year in our beautiful gardens.

However you may like to view the bands that would have been here this month online.

Sunday 31st May

The band converted from a fife and drum band to a brass band in 1875 and it was then admired in its yellow braided tunics and caps, and red striped trousers! ...  

The band has ditched the strip uniform and these days, prefers to be known for its quality of sound and music.
