Tidebrook Fete

Tidebrook Fete 2016



Summer must be on its way – we are getting busy! This coming Saturday we are off to entertain at a private garden party but the following Saturday, 16th June, we are playing at our local Tidebrrok Fete. It has become a tradition and is a great instutution rasing funds for our local church. This year Towngate House are the hosts and its not just a great place for great teas and cakes, but fun, games, lots of stalls and our music drifting across the lawn, all in the wonderful setting of the Tidebrook valley. The fete starts at 1pm, just follow the signs in Tidebrook for a lovely afternoon!

I’ll Walk with God – from our Spring Concert

What a great evening we had at our Spring Concert. It was David Healy’s first as Musical Director and we had a fabulous audience in the Commemoration Hall and on a Friday night too! “I’ll walk with God” is by Nicholas Brodsky and arranged by Goff Richards. It was originally written for the 1954 motion picture The Student Prince and has lyrics written by Paul Francis Webster.

Trevor Westley 1942-2018

The Westley banding clan
It is with great sadness the band announces the passing of Trevor Westley after a short illness aged 75. Trevor had been a member of Wadhurst Brass band for over 35 years and being versatile he played almost every instrument in the band from Bb bass to cornet! When living in the area he had a spell as treasurer of the band as well as hosting band socials before he moved to the north Kent coast. Although living some distance away he made the trip back to Wadhurst on many a Thursday evening for band practice. He was a brass bandsman through and through not only playing with Wadhurst Brass Band but with Snowdown Colliery Band and Faversham Fellowship Band amongst many others. He has travelled far and wide to listen and play with brass bands and in recent years he went to Halifax in Nova Scotia on a two week brass band school holiday. His grandchildren, Lewis, Elliot and Abigail, caught the brass bug from him which made him a very proud man. Our sympathy and love goes to Trevor’s family.

Spring Concert – 16th March

Daid Healy
New Conductor, New date! Now its official, David Healy will be taking his first concert as the band’s conductor after a couple of years as deputy conductor. Our Spring Concert will take place in the Commemoration Hall on Friday 16th March. So please pop this date into your diary it will be great to see you there. This is a departure from our usual Saturday fixture and the concert will start at 8pm. We are working hard on a programme with music for everyone so we hope that the new date and time will liven up our Friday night. Tickets will be available from Carillon Cottage in Wadhurst from early in February or by emailing tickets@wadhurstbrassband.co.uk.
