Our Story



In the corner of a small staff room at Lincoln County Hospital in 1976, four employees discussed their love of brass music over a cup of hot tea. Joe Thompson, a Methodist Lay Preacher, suggested the group should start a band. Ex Salvationist Fred Capewell, Ray Brown and Brian Knowles were all in agreement. Their mugs clinked in unison and the Lincolnshire Hospital’s Band was born.
