The Band recently started its 100th anniversary celebrations with a full house concert and CD release at the Valley Hotel in Fivemiletown.

The concert and release of the CD entitled ‘A Centenary Celebration’ marked what will be a series of celebratory events for the band throughout the 2024 year. Led by conductor Stephen Crooks the history of the band was recalled by former band member Beverley Weir as the band played musical selections from the decades. It was a fantastic evening with plenty of memorabilia on show including band uniforms, programmes from their European tours and a vast array of scrapbooks and cuttings collated for over 60 years by past President and Chairman William Lyons. Performances on the night came from band soloists James Cooke, Robert Wilson and Noel Trimble, whilst following the final item the band was greeted with a standing ovation from supporters, family, friends and former band members some of whom had travelled from as far away as Dubai to celebrate the historic occasion!
