Cromer and Sheringham Brass Band hits a 60 year high note
Cromer and Sheringham Brass Band held a special open day at the weekend as part of its 60th anniversary celebrations.
The band was founded through the amalgamation of the town's two bands in 1956.
The Cromer band started life as a boys band in the late 1940s by the local branch of the Christian movement TOC-H, with Henry Bishop as the Bandmaster/Conductor.
And the Sheringham Temperance Band was formed around 1923 with Henry Grice of Sheringham as the founder member of the group.
The band held an open day in Cromer Parish Hall on Saturday, with visitors popping in to meet members of the band, learn something of its history, pick up and have a blow of a brass instrument - or bash a drum and cymbal - and have a cup of tea and piece of cake.
And the afternoon gave over to an informal concert.
