Newbury Bandstand

hsb1What a scorcher! Middle of September and the temperature was in the early twenties. The band enjoyed entertaining the audience on a lovely sunny afternoon in Newbury with a wide selection of pieces.

The band even managed to take a new band photograph, goodness knows how long we had been using the previous one! You may have spotted this as our profile picture on both this web site and the Facebook page. Sadly a few of our players were away for various reasons and so don’t appear in this new photograph. Perhaps we will try for another updated photograph at some point!

Thanks again to the people who came along to help out playing for the afternoon, it is always much appreciated!


First Rehearsal following the summer break!

This week, Wednesday 5th September, see us starting rehearsals again following the summer break. Whilst its been great to have a few weeks break to enjoy the weather and holidays it will be great to get back to playing again.

In a couple of weeks we have our next concert which will be in Newbury on the bandstand in Victoria Park. The band will be playing from 3pm to 5pm with a short break in the middle for tea and ice creams!

Following that we will be playing for the Remembrance Day event in Kingsclere on the 11th November.

If you know anyone who fancies coming along for a blow with us please get in touch and we would be pleased to hear from you.
