Aldeburgh Artillery Band

During the Aldeburgh Regatta in September 1868, a display of fireworks took place near the Moot Hall. Apparently the Aldeburgh Artillery Corps Band were asked to play but refused and the Saxmundham Volunteers Band played instead!

Aldeburgh British Legion Band

The British Legion Band played for the “Annual Pilgrimage of Witness” at Iken on Sunday 9 July 1939.
