Entry forms and tickets will be available in September and the ticket price will include a cheese supper (bring own wine!) Ticket prices are £4 adults, £2.50 primary school children, under 5s free.

Summer Fayre

Thank you!
Many thanks to everyone who attended, organised and helped out at our summer fayre, the weather could have been kinder but we still managed to raise a fantastic £641!


All the bands have voted and most members are happy with the new proposal (which is absolutely optional).
Female members of the band of high school age and above, could (if they wish), wear a smart white open neck blouse for concerts, rather than a shirt and tie/bowtie.

We hope you have had your invite to the BBQ (if not please see your bandleader) so we can plan over the summer break please make sure you have responded by 31st July. It will be lovely to see some new faces (and the old ones of course!)
