Following a very successful visit to St. Bartholomew’s Church at Herne Bay last year the band have been invited back and commence our series of Spring and Summer engagements at the church on Saturday 18th April at 7.30pm. As always, a programme of varied music covering all genres is promised and we look forward to a warm welcome once more.
We are extremely pleased to announce the visit of a band of fellow musicians from The Netherlands over the weekend of 30/31st May 2020.

The concert is still in it’s planning stages but it is anticipated that both bands will perform individually as well as combining together to play a number of pieces together. Keep an eye on this website as well as our Facebook page for further details that will appear very soon!
