Garland 2020 weblg

Thank you to Angela C. for the lovely flower arrangement.

In Castleton, Friday 29th May is Garland day – an ancient ceremony that is thriving and now known throughout the country after the documentary  Britain by Bike – Peak District.
The Castleton Silver Band play the Garland Tune many times each year.  Covid-19 has not stopped that, although there is no marching in this version.  Also there is no rain (a regular visitor to the ceremony).  There have been contributions from the Senior Band, the Training Band (and some toddlers who will be joining us before too long).  All of the contributions are included.  Follow this link for Garland in Lockdown … and enjoy.
Thank you. 
John Whitfield
