Band Meeting Place

A Memory of Basildon

I can remember in my youth, meeting here as a member of the Basildon drum and trumpet corp, we used to march up the slope and into the town square where we did our display. That was in the 1970s.

A memory shared by John Harrison , on Oct 28th, 2011.

Reading some of the memories of Basildon, I rmember very well going to watch the Basildon drum and trumpet band in the 1970's with the Keary family, and then rose Keary and glen Carter started the mayflower and I joined that. The band were my whole life.
