Summer Concert - 1st July 2018

We’re really pleased to confirm that our summer concert this year will be in the Walled Garden at the Old Moat Garden Centre at 3pm on Sunday 1st July. We’ve recently struck up a relationship with the Old Moat, which is almost literally on our doorstep! Some of you may have heard us playing carols there at Christmas. Their Walled Garden is a pretty and tranquil spot and will be a perfect setting for a summer afternoon’s musical entertainment. You can picnic on a rug on the lawn or use the seating provided, taking advantage of the very reasonably priced refreshments on offer. If the weather isn’t amenable, we will retire to the comfort of a nearby shelter instead.

Tickets will be available in due course. As usual, you’ll be able to download an order form from this site. Or you can join the mailing list via the link on the right of this page and have one sent to you. Check back here for further details nearer the time.

Prizes galore at the Crawley Spring Contest

The band entered the SCABA spring contest on Sunday and won!

The national ‘Areas’ contest is fast approaching and we decided to take advantage of SCABA’s early ‘spring’ contest at The Hawth in Crawley on 25th February to run out this year’s test piece - Jonathan Bates’s ‘Ex Terra Lucem’. There was some excellent playing all round with notable solos from Matt Paterson (Cornet), Claire Slee (Euphonium), George Boote (Soprano) and Lisa Hill (Flugel). The band scooped first prize in the overall test piece competition as well as Best Trombone Section (Lesley Batty, Faye Wilson-Cressey and Pete Hicks) and Paul Graham took home the Best Conductor trophy. A very productive day and good preparation for the national qualifiers, which are taking place in Stevenage on 18th March. Well done everybody and thanks to all at SCABA for your hard work.

The trophies will be on display at our summer concert, which will be in the walled garden at the Old Moat garden centre on Horton Lane. This is likely to be on 1st July with a 3pm start and we’ll confirm as soon as we can. We hope to see you there!
