More news from Cornwall Youth Brass Band

Forty two musicians from the Cornwall Youth Brass Band were privileged to play for HRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall at Padstow on their annual visit to Cornwall on July 20th. The Prince, known as The Duke of Cornwall while in the County, and the Duchess toured the Harbour at Padstow, where thousands of well wishers had gathered.

The Royal Couple toured the Harbour, where the Band had been entertaining the crowds, and paused to listen to them, before being introduced to the Band’s two Conductors, Alan Pope and Darren Hawken, as well as several of the musicians, including Senior Members, Megan Thomas and Matthew Brown and Trustees of the Band.

In talking to the Band, the Duke warmly congratulated the musicians on their performance and enthusiasm for music and thanked them for taking the time off from school to entertain the Duchess and himself.  

At the same time The Duke and Duchess also met members of the Committee of The West of England Bandsmen’s Festival, of which he has recently become Patron.
