Lord Mayor's Music Competition

Sunday 25th September 2022

Guildhall Yard

A midday event in Guildhall Yard – the annual Lord Mayor’s Music Competition, started in 2017 by Alderman Sir Andrew Parmley (representing the Lord Mayor today).

In the final were the Band of The Sea Cadet Corps, the Band of the RAF Air Cadets and the Combined Cadet Force Corps of Drums from Mill Hill School.

Each band marched on, played 3 tunes followed by Bugler, and then marched off.

These young cadets displayed amazing talent, and many will go on much further in their military musical careers.

Whilst the judges deliberated, we made our way down to the Crypts to enjoy a reception with other Masters and Consorts.

The 3 distinguished military judges had a tough task selecting the prize winners – the main prize for the best band being awarded to The Sea Cadet Corps.

The Mistress and I were spell bound at the quality produced from these young cadets.
