Broadstairs Bandstand

Dispite the wet weather, the band played at Broadstairs between 2:30 and 3:30pm on the 26th. The audience braved the weather and sat under umbrellas for best part of the performance. Special thanks go to Guest Conductor Joe Chester and guest players Nevil, David and Fiona (Cornet), Deborah Hazell (Baritone) and Claire Varley (Euphonium)

Band in Full Swing

BIG band sounds reverberated across the Leas at the weekend during a concert on the bandstand. The Folkestone open-air venue played host to the Snowdown Colliery Welfare Band. And while they entertained the crowds; volunteers from the British Heart Foundation made a collection to celebrate the charities 40th anniversary. The final total was just under £40.
