Prudhoe Community Band @ Central Station. December 1

Ascending the escalator at Newcastle Central Station there was the unmistakable sound of a big band somewhere up on the concourse. Ah, the Prudhoe Community Band. Now this is a big band. So many brass and reeds I lost count. The ensemble spanned the ages - pre-teen to coffin dodgers! It was that time of year…Chris Rea’s Driving Home for Christmas and Slade’s So Here it is Merry Christmas filled the chill air. Band master Dave Hignett merrily waved his baton. Santa hats looked at him from the massed ranks wondering if he could be Father Christmas in an overcoat as a back row brass toting reindeer pumped up the volume. The collection buckets were out in force. Yes, it is that time of year again. Bah humbug!
