About the project

Lydbrook Band recently took part in a photo shoot, helping us to celebrate 20 years of National Lottery Funding.

Lydbrook Band is a Lottery funded, championship band based in the heart of the Royal Forest of Dean. They featured in the 2013 National Lottery Christmas advert. The band was formed in 1923 from three smaller bands in the village and it was known as the Lydbrook Reed & Brass Band.

This project is just one of many to have received a grant from Arts Council England, which distributes National Lottery funding, as well as government grants, to support a range of activities across the arts, including museums, libraries, theatre, digital art, reading, dance, music, literature, crafts and collections. The National Lottery supports projects like these because great art and culture inspires us, bringing people and communities together, and teaches us about ourselves and the world around us.
