KCB presents its annual New Year Festival on Saturday 3 February with special guests Joe Kemp (former KCB and current percussionist with the RAF Central Band) and Gemma Hinchliffe of the International Staff Songsters.
Both guests are musicians of excellence, and this is one not to be missed.
Today we are celebrating the marriage of our principal baritone, Sarah Hunt to James Horsley.
Some of the band and family friends will be making up a ‘wedding band’ and we look forward to sharing in the celebrations as James and Sarah commit themselves to each other.
Today, the band were able to participate in the funeral and service of thanksgiving for the life of Phyllis Jacobson.
Phyll was a great supporter of the band, and we will continue to support the family in our prayers in these difficult days.
We enjoyed the Kettering Citadel Corps Carol Services yesterday and this was one of KCB’s contributions.
The corps raised over £1200 and almost 900 people passed through the Citadel doors yesterday. We hope and pray that they all took away something of our excitement about the birth of Jesus and the message of Christmas.

Kettering Citadel Band has the honour of providing the accompanying music at the service of thanksgiving for the life of Mrs Mandy Clark later today.
Mandy has been a tremendous supporter of the band and we give thanks for her influence throughout the years.
Our prayers are with the whole family as they mourn, especially her husband Barry, and her boys, Robert and Richard.
