Llangollen Youth Band's first major outing


* The Youth Band at Ironbridge Gorge


Proudly wearing their new uniform of bright blue hoodies, the Llangollen Youth Band gave a slickand polished performance at the Ironbridge Gorge Brass Band Festival on Sunday 15th July.

 This-much loved festival, now in its eighth year, is held in the Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron and has so far raised over £20,000 for Severn Hospice.
The weather was warm and sunny  - goodness knows how that happened considering how much rain there’s been this summer - and the young people took advantage of the day to listen to other youth and adult bands – including the Llangollen SilverBand of course  - and even managed to find time to fit in a visit to the “Enginuity” exhibition on the same site, where they enjoyed trying out various “hands on” scientific displays, as well as consuming gallons of ice cream!
