BCB 125 Weekend 2018 poster.png

22nd and 23rd September 2018

On Saturday 22nd September and Sunday 23rd September we will be celebrating 125 Years of Birmingham Citadel Band.  A concert at the Ruddock Arts Centre on the 22.9.18 will be preceded by an afternoon rehearsal for BCB and former members of the band.  We encourage all former members of BCB to join us for this event.

The evening concert will feature the current BCB playing current repertoire (including "The Present Age”) in the first half.  The second half will be a massed reunion band and will feature music that has been chosen to reflect our 125 year history of music ministry.  The Sunday will include a morning meeting led by the band and then a lunch when we can eat together as a band and welcome those former members to join us.
