Despite a rainy weather forecast, we were able to get around the village without getting wet!

The number of players was down on previous years but, despite this, a large number of followers turned out and were very appreciative of our efforts!  Thank you to all the lovely people who put donations in our collecting buckets and for the mince pies, sausage rolls and mulled wine we were supplied with!


By tradition, Gweek Silver Band always venture out at 10am on Christmas morning to play carols at various spots around the village. In fact, this was the first public appearance by the band when they formed in 1926.

The regular band members are accompanied by ex-members, plus friends from other bands in the area.

Unfortunately our run of good luck with the weather in previous years ran out and we were accompanied by drizzle for most of the time. At the end our music books were in a very sorry state and our Cornish Carol books will need replacing! A big thank you to all the people who put donations in our bucket and to those who supplied us with mince pies and mulled wine (Daniel’s mulled cider was excellent again!). Once again, despite the weather, we were followed by a large number of supporters - we hope you enjoyed it and wish you all the best for 2024!
