Watch the GWR Paddington Band

Your author is away to the West today for the second weekend in a row, and this website will as a result not be updated until the middle of next week. For all those heading in the same direction, or anyone who enjoys some classical music on a Friday night, the GWR Paddington Band are performing for all passengers at Paddington Station from around 19.30pm until around 21.00pm, just as they do each Friday between Easter and Christmas.

Concerts take place on Platform 9 and feature marches, tunes from the shows, classics and popular songs, in a tradition that can trace its history back to before 1923, when the Great Western Railway and Paddington Borough prize silver band would perform regularly, with its successor the Great Western Railway Staff Military Band later giving performances on the station lawn.
