Where were we?

Catching up from the end of the Summer 2022 season, the headlines were…
– if you came to our Charity Concert at the Roper Theatre Bath
– and if you were at our concert in the bandstand at Keynsham, or the Village Fair at Bathampton,
– or if you saw us at Cribbs Causeway in early December,

Thank you – and we hope to see you again sometime during the 2023 season, which is just beginning to shape up.

Now read on:

We are back to our regular practice schedule of Monday nights at Lansdown for the Concert Band. As yet, we are not in a position to restart the Wednesday training sessions, possibly there will be developments later this year.

We do have some dates for concerts already:
This year our charity concert will be held at Saltford Community Hall, on Saturday June 17th. It’s a bit early to buy tickets, but we’ve had to confirm dates early because of other commitments for venues (there’s a coronation sometime, and lot of Bank Holidays).
We will also be playing in the Keynsham bandstand one Sunday afternoon in the Summer, and we’re already down for a couple of Christmas appearances.
