The Lymelight Festival

On Saturday the Drum Corps played in Newcastle as part of the Lymelight Festival.

This was a free music and arts festival in Newcastle town centre which took place on the first bank holiday weekend in May. This was Newcastle’s first outdoor music and arts festival.

The Drum Corps played on the bandstand in Queen’s Gardens and it is thought that this weekend was the first time that the bandstand had been used since it was built!

The band the marched down the Ironmarket to the Guildhall and then played again in front of the Guildhall and by the market Cross. They played really well and many people, including the Town Centre manager, congratulated them on the excellent performance they put on.
You can also see photos of the band playing here in the Gallery.
