Fulham Band begin the process of moving out

On Saturday 26th February 2011, Fulham began to move out of the British Legion, which has been their home for the past 10 years. Several volunteers took on the non-insubstantial task of moving music, instruments, uniforms and the like, from various locations dotted around the Legion.

The move has been necessitated by changes at the Fulham Branch of the Royal British Legion and we would like to thank all the people who have been involved with hosting us over the last 10 years. They have been kind and generous hosts and we would like to thank them all for their efforts, time and flexibility. I am sure that we will maintain the excellent links forged with the Legion over the coming years.

 

Fulham feature in Ant and Dec’s Push the Button

On February 19th, members of the Fulham Brass Band featured in an episode of Ant and Dec’s Push the Button and played to the biggest audience we will probably ever achieve (6.57 millon). 

The band had been approached to play the programmes’ theme tune. As well as this, we were involved in a game that was entitled, “You do the Maths”. This entailed the contestants selecting members of the band such that their combined ages added up to a given number. To make the game more achievable for the contestants, the band numbers were swelled by some, let’s say, more elderly individuals. That might have accounted for those instruments that were being held upside down during the playing of the theme tune!
