After the novelty and excitement of the Band’s overseas adventures cruising in the Norwegian Fjords at the end of May it was time to come back down to earth (literally!) during June and July, and undertake a series of traditional local concerts. The sight and sounds of a brass band performing in the park or on the promenade at the seaside is quintessentially English, even if, on occasions, the sun has gone on strike and the umbrellas have to be unfurled.
We were delighted to attract enthusiastic audiences of locals and holiday makers at Kelling Heath, Waterloo Park in Norwich, and Girl guides at Hautbois, rounding off July with a memorable concert in the lovely setting of Salle Church. A return visit to Kelling is in the diary for this month, together with a visit to the bandstand at Eaton Park in Norwich which is always popular and well attended, before we start turning our attention to our busy schedule of autumn concerts.
It’s not too early to start booking for our “home” Taverham concerts on18th/19th October! Full details in next month’s edition.
