Castleton Garland 2020
We were in lockdown but the music went on.
Click on the photo to hear the band
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
