Band on the Rec - Friday 24th June

Friday 24th June saw our return to the annual concert on the recreational ground in Beenham. It was fantastic to see a full audience equipped with chairs, picnic tables and blankets for a full evening of entertainment. Refreshments were provided by The Six Bells. Despite the weather trying to stop play, we had great fun performing a selection of our summer favourites enthusiastically led by our amazing conductor Victoria Benjamin.

It was also a sad evening as we said good bye to Jane. Victoria said it perfectly:

"Jane Hodgson, thank you from the bottom of the band's heart, for everything. Your musicality, humour and smiles will be sorely missed. Come back and see us when you can. "

Newbury Bandstand - Jubilee Concert

The rain held off, the audience arrived in Jubilee spirit and a fantastic time was had by all. The band performed an eclectic mix of music and there was something for everyone. The finale of toe tapping music from the 60s finished with 'Ain't no mountain high enough' which definitely was a challenger for best performance over the Jubilee celebrations!
