Something for the weekend. This Sunday the 8th of October will see a performance by a brass band from Southampton, England in the heart of the Old City of Dubrovnik. The “Albion Band” will perform at 2.30 pm in front of the St. Blaise Church in Dubrovnik organised by the Dubrovnik Tourist Board.
The City of Southampton (Albion) Band was founded in 1920, and since then it has been part of the city’s heritage, cultural, and community scene playing at the Dell, (Southampton Football Club’s old ground) for over forty years and at leading local events such as Remembrance Day, VE and VJ Day parades and at the FA Cup Final celebrations in 1976.
The Band has a very full and varied engagement list in addition to the above, including formal concerts, bandstands, charity events, Christmas carols, and regular tours abroad. In recent years the band has visited Madeira, Germany and is now on their way to Dubrovnik.
