Andy's VE Da

On Friday last week, amid a socially-distancing afternoon tea party, Henbury's "one-man brass band" Andy Crosland, put on 45mins of wartime music to entertain residents and to relieve the lockdown rut.

He also played The Last Post and Charlie Reveille on his trombone before Churchill's speech on tv ... an awesome afternoon/evening of Henbury spirit.

Andy told us "I felt very proud to be playing The Last Post in memory of those who fought for our freedom. And it was quite interesting to see how Henbury fell silent.
Then I did my best to count to 120 (seconds) ..."

We have a compilation of clips of Andy's concert in this short video.

And remember you can see all the Thursday evening Henbury concerts in our "Playing for NHS" Gallery here

Thank you to all our Henbury musicians who are keeping spirits up!
