Pride of Norris Green Accordian Ban

band was initially a male concertina band but later became a mixed band with the introduction of accordians. We had the honour
of being invited to Londonderry in March 2006 to take part in their 17th March Maiden City Festival and hope we can continue
to move forward with our younger members who will try and equal the service of our longest serving band member of over 40
years, the band practice on Monday evenings at Liverpool Provincial HQ and new members will be welcomed.
Lily & Rose Blues & Royals Flute Band
The Band was formed in 2006 hoping we could revitalise the flute band tradition within the LOL and encourage younger members
to embrace their culture.
The bands name is taken in honour and remembrance of the Blues and Royals who fought at King Williams side and lost many members
following the IRA bombing outrage on the 2nd of August 1982. The motto “Nulli Secundus” means “Second to
None” and though there are many who may feel this is arrogant, it truly isn’t as members are expected to be the
best they can with our culture of excellence, we’re not there by a long way but we will keep trying!Our medium and long
term ambition is to establish a band with as great a history as those that have gone before us and proudly display our Liverpool
heritage in all parts of the United Kingdom.
