Congratulations to Cory and Amersham bands , both recognised with the Queen ' s Award for Voluntary Service . Recognising outstanding work by local volunteer groups , the honours are well-deserved for two organisations carrying out remarkable work . From their performances to their education work , Cory and Amersham are doing their communities proud and are shining examples of all that is good in banding .
Did you attend Brassed Off Live ? Don ' t worry if you missed out - Liz Lane brings an in-depth report from the hugely successful recent event at London ' s Royal Albert Hall , including conversations with many of those involved . It ' s a great read and highlights the enduring love and affection for a film which , while understandably dramatised , shone a spotlight on the plight faced by the miners in Grimethorpe ( Grimley in the film ) and thousands of others across the country .
Jeremy de Korte brings the fascinating story of James Ord Hume and Besses o ' th ' Barn Band , specifically their transformative influence on the fledgling Australian banding scene at the early part of the 20th century .
That , plus all the latest banding news .
Have a good week .
