Inspired by the Royal Marine Band - Leeds Town Hall

Leeds Town Hall
Inspired by the Royal Marine Band
Russell Sykes - 48, former Royal Marine Band member - talks about the inspiration he got from watching the military bands in the Town Hall as a boy and how it gave him the idea for how he could combine his ambitions of being a musician and a soldier. He describes how his perception of the Town Hall has changed since he's become homeless.
