1954 | Angarrack Wesleyan Sunday School was engaging bands right up to 1954, at least

Angarrack Wesleyan Sunday School was engaging bands right up to 1954, at least. In 1886 they paid Copperhouse Band
£1. 10s. Eleven years later Copperhouse was charging £2.10s. In 1919 they engaged the prodigious
Camborne Town Band for £7.10s. But it must have been a rare luxury for next year it was back to
Copperhouse at £5. So Copperhouse had it until 1928 when St Erth made its first appearance at
the tea treat charging £5.10s. Perhaps fearing price competition they managed to reduce next
year to £4. 14s. 7d! Next year (1933) Hayle came at £5, then Camborne Junior. Marazion Band
came a couple of years and in 1937 they played indoors! Considering the size of the schoolroom

hymns were sung after an address by the Rev. Thomas Martin after which they returned to the

and hymns sang and, on the way back, rested for a while at Riviere House and may well have sung
