Ian’s Update January 2023

At the time of writing, we have just launched into rhe “Christmas Frenzy”, something missed by brass bands for the past few years. Pretty much back to normal with a variety of Christmas events and concerts with most looking to raise valuable funds for various good causes.

The Band has a brief rest after Christmas and returns mid-January to have a good music sort-out and to introduce new music for our 2023 programmes.

Our first 2023 concerts are our Spring Concerts – the first since 2019 and, as is traditional for that time of year, we will include a wide variety of lovely music from shows, films, traditional and more.

Whilst costs have increased our prices remain the same so why not come along for a great local evening out for all the family?!

We had a couple of rehearsals cancelled in July, one as the result of a mini covid surge and the other when 40C was considered too hot to be trapped indoors blowing hot air!
