Fred's Birthday and a GSB Duck-Race Miscellany, Brome, Eye and London - 28th September 2019

The Gislingham Silver Band are playing at the Duck Race down at the Pennings in Eye again, but this year Fred and Nosher are also in the senior band, so there's less chance to actually watch the race itself. But before that, it's Fred's birthday, then there's the ever-changing array of graffiti along the tracks into Liverpool Street, and finally there's a demonstration to free jailed human-rights activist Omoyele Sowore, outside the Nigerian High Commission on Northumberland Avenue in London
