'Formed in the 1930s under the name “Blofield & District Silver Band”, the band has undergone several changes, moving to Strumpshaw, Freethorpe and then Cantley ... In September 2015 we made the exciting decision to become a concert/wind band and invite woodwind players to join for the first time. This has allowed for a range of new music, a larger band for concerts and engagements, and provides a progression route for those in the Training Band.'

Formed originally in 1973 at the East Anglian School 'to give the partially sighted pupils of the school the opportunity to learn how to read music and play brass instruments within a group. At that time it was not easy to convince the leading lights within the school that their scheme would be worthwhile and plausible due to the wide spectrum of eyesight disabilities within each child ... The school’s closure in 1985 led to a few uncertain years as quite a few of the players were boarders at the school so subsequently had to leave the band to return to their homes all across the country ... In 1998 the band was fortunate enough to secure Lottery Funding which enabled a whole set of new instruments to be purchased ... The old instruments were passed over to local youngsters and the GYB Youth Band came into existence. Both bands have gone from strength to strength and through dedication, commitment and persistence of individuals and players'.

'The largest parish church in England ... In 1942 the church was completely gutted during a German air raid leaving only the Norman tower and the walls standing. With the aid of a War Damage Commission grant and fund raising by local people and businesses the church was rebuilt (architect - Stephen Dykes Bower). The Church was reconsecrated in 1961 ... On December 9th, 2011 the Lord Bishop of Norwich designated St Nicholas Church, Great Yarmouth a Minster Church. From then on, its official title is The Minster Church of St Nicholas ... The organ was built in 1882 by William Hill, one of the best English organ builders of his time ... Although the organ still sounds wonderful it is in dire need of restoration ...'
