Thurrock Marching Brass March Clacton Carnival
Thurrock Marching Brass entertained a packed 2015 Clacton Carnival on Saturday 8 August 2015 as people lined the sea front route under perfect blue skies.
This is the third successive year that the young marching band has taken part in this popular carnival. Despite having a large number of members on their holidays, the band did a fantastic job, with clap along tunes such as “London Bridge is falling down”, “Oh When the Saints go Marching in” and “Born to be Wild” among their parade repertoire. This is also an opportunity to let some of the staff members join the band which was wonderful to see and to hear with staff members in the brass, marching bells and percussion.
Speaking of the day, chairman, Paul Morgan comments “It’s absolutely brilliant that we are able to entertain the public in this way and I would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone at the Clacton Carnival committee for including us. The whole band, including the staff members who also joined in; one for the first time in over 25 years, and another for the first time ever in a carnival; the whole atmosphere was exactly as it should be. Fun, light hearted with just the right pinch of professionalism to ensure that everyone enjoyed not only the band’s performance, but the day itself. As a special conclusion to the day everyone was treated to a well-earned McDonalds once out of their uniforms which added more fun. I’m really proud of all the staff, members and supporters that help to make the day such a fun and enjoyable one”.
