Band on the Rec

A perfect evening for ‘Band on the Rec’ at Beenham. What a super atmosphere and how wonderful to see so many people enjoying themselves. It has been such a long time since we last performed in public but we returned in style! A massive thank you to everyone who worked so hard to enable us to play and to ensure this was a Covid safe event.
