The Dagenham Girl Pipers: an 80th anniversary celebration

THE AMAZING STORY OF THE WORLD’S FIRST GIRL BAND – STILL GOING STRONG AFTER 80 YEARS!

When the Dagenham Girl Pipers were founded in 1930 by the Reverend J.W. Graves, made up of 11 year-olds from his Sunday School, no-one guessed they would soon be enjoying global fame. This book tells the full story, including the early days, the band’s crucial role during World War Two, and the heartwarming Millennium Day reunion. We also read about the girls’ extensive travels and the personalities they’ve met along the way, ranging from Royalty to Hitler, from Henry Ford to Elvis. With over 130 b&w illustrations.
