10/04/2011 Swearing in Ceremony

The band were honoured to be taking part in the Swearing in Ceremony for the Islands’ new Lieutenant Governor Mr Adam Wood in Castletown on Thursday 7th April.

Before the ceremony, whilst the invited guests and officials were arriving, the band entertained the crowds in Castletown Square with a selection of marches and Manx tunes, including Manxland, Kelly and True and Trusty. On the arrival of the governor designate, the band led the gathering in the Royal Anthem and the National Anthem of the Isle of Man, followed by a rendition of Ellan Vannin during which Mr Wood met and talked to the crowds.

A procession of the officials and invited guests, led by friends from Manx Concert Brass who were going to be playing the fanfares on state trumpets, then made it’s way into Castle Rushen for the actually ceremony.
