    Former members of the City of Coventry Band, which disbanded in 1993, are arranging a social re-union for ex members of the Band.

    It is 30 years since the band won the last British Open at Belle Vue, Manchester, so September 2011 seems an excellent opportunity to get as many ex members as possible together.

    The re-union will be at the Coventry Hilton Hotel on Saturday 24th September 2011 and will comprise an evening buffet, recordings and videos of the Band, displays of photos and memorabilia and plenty of nostalgic catching up.

    Overnight accommodation will be available at the Hilton.

    The re-union is being organised by Ian Scott (1976 – 1989) and Tim Washington (1980 – 1990).

    Ian and Tim have an extensive list of ex members but don’t have contact details for everyone. Therefore, they ask anyone interested to get in touch with them for further details of the event and also, if possible, to provide contact details of other people they know who may be interested.

    They are looking for a large turnout representing as many decades of the band’s history as possible. In addition to the social event, if there is sufficient interest, a playing session may be possible.

    Those interested, please contact either Ian or Tim:

    Ian Scott

    Tim Washington

    I've just been infomed that Barry Ogden who played with the band in the 60's is attending.

    Barry emigrated to Canada in 1966 and then after 38 years, he moved to Costa Rica.

    Barry is looking forward to meeting ex-members from all eras, but would love to see as many from his time in the band as possible.
