From various audience members
“I’d just like to thank you again for the excellent performance at last nights concert. The Taverham Band has always been very good, but every year you always seem to get better to me, and last nights audience was a true testament of the standard you produce, our largest yet.
I spent a few hours in Thetford this morning, and have received many comments about how everyone enjoyed the occasion, not just the band’s performance, but the easy manner in which you relate to the audience. I thought the lady sitting next to me was close to having an accident with the amount of laughter she was producing!
I’ve started already on the RAF 100 Concert and am aiming at a complete sell out!”

“Ed loves brass band music (who doesn’t?!) and this prompted me to look for bands to play at our reception. All the ‘professional’ bands I came across were way out of budget, but I found the Taverham Band online, who were fairly local to Chaucer Barn. They were out of this world, and by far the biggest “I’m so glad we did that!” of the entire wedding. Everyone loved the big sound, and they played everything from Disney songs to musical numbers! It’s so worth looking around for local bands and groups- there are many talented people out there”

“The programme you put together was perfect for the occasion. The feedback from the audience was very positive, and it was unanimous that we should make this an annual event. Some who said they would not like Brass Band music were completely converted, thanks to the Band!”
“Booking very easy and a pleasure”
“The people I have spoken to since the event thought it was absolutely marvellous, and the whole ‘experience’ very well organised. (I was happy and singing in the kitchen!)”

“Thank you for coming all the way to King’s Lynn for the Justice Service on Sunday.
The fanfare was perfect for the entrance of the two High Court Judges. I was told that King’s Lynn had never seen the like of it before, so I was really pleased! You all looked so smart in your matching uniforms with the new fanfare trumpets and pennants whiah all added to the splendour of the occasion”

This contribution will make an enormous difference to the charity and our work with people living with and affected by PSP. The money will help us with our work in Norwich and Norfolk, where we operate support groups and provide help and advice via a Development Officer and PSP Nurse Specialist.
