Members of the Redwell Comprehensive School brass/wind band and choir had good reason to blow their own trumpets back in the 1980s, for the young musicians not only gained success in local music festivals, they were also asked to perform at prominent local events.

Our photo selection shows the talented pupils in March 1984 after their success at the Wansbeck Schools Music Festival, in Newbiggen, Northumberland.

They were also pictured in June, performing at a “continuous concert” in the school’s drama hall, and then a month later playing at the opening of the Denmark Centre, in South Shields.
