Friday 19th July 7:30 will see a very special version of our annual “Band on the Rec”. To celebrate our 20th anniversary we will be hosting Beenham’s version of the last night of the Proms. We are also very fortunate to have soloist Theresa Lunn who will be performing. As always there will be the opportunity to purchase refreshments. So please join us on the recreational grounds in Beenham for what will be a very special evening – and don’t forget to bring your singing voice and flags!

The great British weather tried to challenge us on our first fete of the season, but we were not to be beaten. Despite our marquee deciding to try and make an early exit from our performance, the band braved the weather at this fantastic, fun and family friendly event. The orchestra provided the audience with some appropriate “May the fourth” music, including a medley from Star Wars. The warm tea and cake were appreciated by all at the interval!
