When the management of Leadenhall Market in the City of London decided to host an event to celebrate St David's Day they invited the Central Southern Area Fellowship Band (bandmaster Brian Cooper) to play a programme of Welsh music over the lunch time. The band played for two hours whilst the market management took a collection in support of the homeless in Westminster and whilst hundreds of people passed by and whilst many stood and listened to the music. The band played almost every Welsh hymn tune in the tune book and every arrangement of such music that it could find. The most enthusiastic applause came when the band played the arrangement of "Land of my Fathers" taken from festival series music "Songs of Britain".
