Barrington band invited to London New Year's parade


The great grandson of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill will visit Barrington High School at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 19, to present a formal invitation to the school's marching band to participate in London's New Year's Day Parade & Festival on Jan. 1, 2014. Councilor Duncan Sandys is not only a direct descendant of Churchill but a former Lord Mayor of London. The highly prestigious New Year's tradition is considered the largest of its kind in the world, with 10,000 performers from around the globe entertaining a street audience of about half a million and an international TV audience of tens of millions.
