UCB joined a parade of torches and bands for Uckfield’s annual carnival.

The event traditionally marks the end of summer and the start of the Sussex bonfire season.

This year it also commemorated the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Martin Buss played the Last Post at a ceremony in the High Street which remembered people from the town who died in the conflict.

Uckfield Concert Brass joined Heathfield Silver Band for the final procession through the town.

Thanks to UCB’s friends from other bands who joined us for the march.

Look out for UCB at Lewes Bonfire on 5 November 2018. The band’s autumn programme  also includes our own tribute to the fallen of the First World War at a concert in November. More details soon.
