This was the 90th Anniversary of the Royal British Legion at leek. We have played before under adverse conditions but not in this way. The rain was relentless. wellington boots were the order of the day. Thank goodness for the cape.
Despite the weather there was a good turnout for the parade around the Town to Brough Park. We were very wet by the time we got there but the crowds cheered us on. Most of them followed on to take part at the Drumhead Service.
The Band played again in the rain to entertain the crowd to shouts and cheers, while the time table was re shuffled due to the weather.
Our final performance was moved to a large marquee where most people were sheltering from the rain. It was the beer tent, there is always a silver lining. We played a selection of contempary tunes and even got shouts of more, which we did.
I will say thank you and well done to all the band who attended and played well in such extreme conditions. We could not have been wetter if we played in a swimming pool.
