“It feels nice to be part of a group who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special.” 

Maddison, aged 10.

What do the clergy think?

“I have been involved with CLCGB since 1969 and have seen how precious it was and what a difference it made in my Parish, All Saints & Martyrs Langley, which had a huge Company. It brings what young people need to young people, it gives them friendship, it gives them fellowship and fun."

Bishop Jack Nichols

The Tone Poem dedicated to 3 CLB Lads

font size

A Special Performance of David Mellor’s ‘Tragedy & Sacrifice on Darwen Moor’, is to be performed for the first time in Blackburn Cathedral on Saturday 15th November this year.  7.00p.m. – 9.30 p.m.  Ticket prices from £5.

The Tone Poem is dedicated to three (CLB) Lads who died on the Moor in 1917.

David Mellor is one of the UK’s top composers who was born in Darwen and was inspired by reading an article about the Lads, by Harold Heys in the local Newspaper, some ten years ago.

A few CLCGB leaders will be going to watch this.  Booking and details are to be found online at http://www.blackburncathedral.com/booking-availability.asp?event_id=7418.
