On August 14th the band departed on its first overseas tour to Beziers in the South of France to take part in their annual five day Festival.

It was an early start ( 0300hrs ) when we finally arrived in the town of Narbonne early in the afternoon where we were to be accommodated the band were told that we had 45mins to unpack and get dressed ready to set off to the location of our first performance. We did four performances that evening and considering the lack of sleep and tempretures of 34 degrees the band did exceptionally well.

For the next four days the routine was much the same and there was two special performances during the week the first being the street parade and secondly the band played for the Mayor and his guests at a private function.

At the end of each day there was time to enjoy the atmosphere of the festival with a few refreshments. The band also had some well deserved time off during the day to relax and explore the town of Narbonne.
