After so much time, it was great for us all to go out and perform in a gig at last!
We gave a concert for the Civil Service Social Club in Filton on a weekend in August, as part of their family fun day. The photo shows the scene during our version of the ‘1812 Overture’. No cannon for us, but plenty of fireworks.
Thanks to the CSSCC for the invite, and congratulations to them for raising over £1000 for NHS and front-line worker charities too.

Thanks too to our ‘guest players’, friends of the band (and especially of Alan, our Director of Music) who stepped in to augment numbers, many of whom travelled considerable distances to be with us for rehearsals and the performance:
Phil, Mike and Colin on clarinet
Chris on cornet
Dave, Andy and Dominic on Horn
Stuart on Trombone
Shirley, James and Mark on Euphonium
Steve on Percussion,
and special thanks to Mark who joined in on vocal numbers, and to John who MC’d the occasion for us.
