SCB play at Weston Park Museum

A group of senior and junior bandsmen from Sheffield Citadel was invited to play at the city’s Weston Park Museum as part of the Sheffield Sunday School Union’s 200th anniversary celebrations.  The Union was set up in 1812 with the aim of teaching the truths of the Christian gospel, through the reading and studying of the Bible.  Hymn writer and social activist James Montgomery was one of the founding members and he remained a prominent leader in their activities, indeed the Council’s headquarters and several streets & community areas within Sheffield are named after him.  A display covering the history of churches and Sunday Schools and their impact on the social history of Sheffield has been commissioned at the Museum and the Band was invited to take part in the official opening of this event where over 100 visitors to the museum were able to listen to the Band playing music associated with James Montgomery’s songs.
