As Christmas seems such a long time ago, the bands calendar for the rest of the year begins to grow with a variety of concerts and events set for the Spring, Summer and Autumn months. With the decision taken not to contest this year, it has allowed the band some time to identify and rehearse music that is both new and also some that has not been played for a while.
The concerts and events include St. Bartholomew’s Church at Herne Bay, St. Martin’s Church at Graveney, Faversham, the usual Kent seaside bandstands and Chislet Country Fair. The band have once again been invited back to the King Ethelbert Inn at Reculver for its annual ‘Best of British’ concert that will move from its Saturday evening to a 3pm downbeat on a Sunday afternoon in the middle of June. Hyde Park Bandstand in London is yet again on the list and the band seem to be becoming a regular visitor, having been invited back for the third year in succession – they must like us!
Two further events that the band are looking forward to are visits to Eythorne & Elvington School during their music week in February and playing at the celebrations for the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain at Spitfire & Hurricane Museum at Manston in May.
