The Christmas season is here and the band kicked off the season in style.
On Thursday, our band announced the opening of the famous Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market and the switching on of the city centre Christmas lights with a grand fanfare.
We joined the Lord Mayor of Birmingham Cllr Mohammed Azim who pressed the button to light up the Christmas tree.
The crowd attending the event were then treated to a selection of carols which floated down into Victoria Square from our position on the balcony of the Council House.
This year marks the Frankfurt Christmas Market’s 20th visit to Birmingham so it was great to be part of the celebration.
There are many more festive outings for the band this season. We’ll be playing again at the German Market so make sure you visit when we’re there! Find out more about our upcoming gigs (including our Christmas Concert on the 7th December) here.
