The band's first rehearsal was at Onslow (now Onslow St Andrey's) School, Hatfield. The rehearsal was attended by 42 musicians. Soon numbers grow as word spreads far and wide.
1980 The first Christmas Concert...
Sunday 7th December 1980
Saw the band perform their first ever Christmas concert on behalf of Cancer Relief, over the next few years, this became a regular and popular event with concerts being held at Campus West and the Forum Theatre, Hatfield (sadly now flats). Guest comperes included Barry Norman (TV Critic and Presenter) and Richard Widmore (Newsreader).
Over the years these popular concerts raised a very worthwhile sum for this important charity.
