All4Brass spoke to Band Chairman, Ray Sykes who said: ‘It was great fun for us to be part of the show and a real honour that Carlton Main were chosen to reflect on our history and where we came from. It’s fantastic that the Antiques Road Trip wanted to reflect on the history of colliery bands and the importance that we are still here today.’
