The band will once again join the Snowdown Colliery Male Voice Choir in its annual Christmas concert at St. Finbarr’s Church in our home village of Aylesham. The concert will take place on Friday 13th December at 7.30pm. It is free entry but with a retiring collection and a raffle – refreshments are also provided during the interval. It goes without saying that the concert will feature a number of upbeat Christmas tunes and songs as well as traditional carols for all to join in. The emphasis of the evening is about having fun in the festive season and in the lead up to Christmas itself. The concert is also the final “swansong” of the choir’s Musical Director, Michael Lewis who retires from the choir after many years at the helm. The band wish him well for the future and sends many congratulations for his service to the choir and music in the area in general.
The band are once again, looking forward to returning to the village of Minster (Thanet) for the annual Christmas Concert in aid of The Pilgrims Hospice. The band have performed in the village hall for the past few years and it is always an enjoyable concert with a great festive audience. This years date is Sunday 15th December and will start at 2.15pm – entry is £4.00 and is free for children. We look forward to seeing you and joining in with those Christmas carols and traditional festive tunes – all for an extremely worthy cause.
