The Troshers band at the NNUH Hospital

The NNUH hospital were delighted to have The Troshers Norfolk accordion band play in the restaurant for all the patients, staff and visitors. 

Joy came with her seeing eyes dog who had a Christmas snooze by her feet.

Here they are playing away to all the floor levels of the hospital as there music rose up threw the atrium.
Drawing in a crowd of doctors, nurses and patients 

The Troshers band started in 1990 and has won awards at festivals. 

Mostly retired and all different levels of experience on the accordion.

Very cheerful and brought joy to everyone.

The eldest player was 90. 

Many patients came down to hear them play. They played Happy Birthday to this lady patient and one of the hospital staff gave her a knitted teddy.

The name Troshers comes from the local dialect verb to Trosh, which means to try – as in ‘Keep yew a’troshin’ bor’  

The band welcomes new people who want to learn to play. They even asked if I wanted to join.
