East Lancashire concert band to honour Accrington Pals
2:55pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
A CONCERT band’s plans to honour the Accrington Pals have been made possible by Arts Council fundings.
East Lancashire Concert Band will use the cash for its project to honour First World War heroes.
A special performance will take place at Accrington Town Hall next year, and the new funding will allow the band to commission new commemorative music.
The performance on Saturday, September 27 2014 will be exactly 100 years since the original band led the soldiers’ parade there to mark the Accrington mayor's recruitment initiative reaching battalion strength.
The band’s composer for the performance, Dr Peter Meechan, is now due to meet with the band to discuss music for the event.
