This year's AGM will take place on Sunday 20th March from 10am and will be held at Colwell Arts Centre, Derby Road, Gloucester.
In addition to the formal meeting, we will also welcome Darren Lea, Liaison Officer of Brass Bands England as our guest speaker.
Introduced to banding at an early age through the Salvation Army, Darren is currently the Principal Cornet of Jaguar Land Rover Band.
Although the majority of the last 25 years has seen Darren playing soprano cornet he has also occupied Bb cornet, flugel, solo horn and percussion positions. He is well known in the Midlands and has performed with a large number of bands (most notably Desford, GUS, Ransome. William Davis and the Brass Band of Central Florida). As well as banding, Darren enjoys playing the trumpet in orchestras and for theatre shows.
During his career, Darren has successfully been involved in numerous organisations and funding projects. He is keen to help bands in his area strengthen and develop their organisations.
