Once again the weather was incredibly kind and the Hannington Fair was a roaring success. Hannington always put on a good day out with lots of stalls selling all sorts of wonderful food and drink, loads of ‘games’ to take part in and a huge number of displays in the main ring.
The band had a wonderful location to play in between the two main areas of the Fair so there were lots of people passing by.
With lots of chairs to sit on the location made a great stopping off point for people to rest their legs and listen to the band for a while. The band actually played 3 sessions during the afternoon playing a huge range of music from film music such as The Greatest Show, through musicals and stage productions to Marches and plenty more.
The fair was busy all afternoon and apart from one or two drops of rain (not enough to put on a coat or put up an umbrella!) the weather stayed warm and sunny all afternoon!
Tadley Treacle Fair came and went. Happy to say it was another warm weather day and the turnout was fantastic as always. The band played two sessions during the afternoon with lots of people walking past and stopping to listen for a while.
It looks like it will be a great weekend for The Tadley Treacle Fair on Sunday 2nd June! The band has its last rehearsal tonight to have a final look at the piece we may play at this event.
The weather for Sunday looks perfect!
June is a busy month for the band. June 2nd sees the band playing at the Tadley Treacle Fair, then June 23rd the band is playing at the Hannington Fair. Then on the 29th June the band will be at Brimpton Fete. Hopefully the weather will be good and we will see lots of people at each event!
What more could people want!
The band is looking forward to a year full of engagements and just getting warmed up. A few weeks ago the band had the pleasure of performing a joint concert with the Basing Singers, “Music from Stage and Screen”, this was a great success and we were pleased to see that the venue was completely full. You can find the Basing Singers web site at Basing Singers Web Site, or their Facebook page is Basing Singers Facebook Page.
The next outing for the band is at the Tadley Treacle Fair on the 2nd June, followed by the ever popular Hannington Fair on June 23rd.
Plenty more to come throughout the year!
