I HAVE just had the most amazing week of the lockdown. It started on Saturday, July 4 with the Durham Miners’ Gala online, continued throughout the week July 13 and ended on Saturday, July 18 with the Durham Brass Festival online, which contained footage of some of the bands from previous years doing premieres via YouTube.

The internet is such a life saver. Well done to The Marras and Durham Brass Festival.
