Camborne Youth Band's race night

Great to see Camborne Youth Band fundraising like mad for their trip to the Menin Gate, Ypres, and the World War One battlefields this August.
It's such a great honour for the Band to play at the Menin Gate - and it's even more exciting as in the Youth Band is the great great grandson of Fred Negus, a tin miner who signed up in 1914 and served at the Front throughout the war. The Band will take Fred's bugle back to the Front: it's currently being refurbished, ready to play.
To listen to Ralph Williams, Fred Negus's grandson, talking about the project, click here.

Bridging Arts will be travelling with the Band and stage an exhibition at Heartlands, Pool, Cornwall afterwards - to display archival material and 21st century reactions to such historic sites. Watch this space.
