LGB Brass (music)

Lewes, Glynde & Beddingham Brass Band are celebrating their 90th anniversary this year with a busy concert programme that takes them across southern England.

They originally formed in Glynde in 1922 under the leadership of the station master at Glynde, William Turner. The Glynde & Beddingham Brass Band added Lewes to their name and became LGB Brass in 2002. They now meet at the All Saints Centre in Lewes on Thursdays.

A significant amount of silverware has come their way in recent years. As well as being London & Southern Counties 4th Section Champions in 2011, they have also managed a 3rd place on promotion to the 3rd Section this year. Plus they were winners of the scaba Spring Contest this year too!

LGB Brass will be playing two concerts in Eastbourne in the near future. On the 15th of August, it is their turn to perform the popular 1812 Firework Concert in the Bandstand. Then, three weeks later on the 7th of September, they are undertaking a fundraising concert for the RNLI's new boat 'Diamond Jubilee' at the King's Centre on Edison Road.

1812 Firework Concert, Wed 15th Aug, 20:00.
