We were very pleased to be joined by Heathfield Silver Band for our concert raising funds for Cancer Research UK. If you couldn’t make the concert here is a flavour – “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from “Carousel”, our title track and “Death or Glory” used in the film “Brassed Off”.
We are getting excited about our upcoming concert, raising vital funds for Cancer Research UK, along with Heathfield Silver Band. After a fantastic massed rehearsal last week we are really looking forwrd to the Saturday 22nd April and would love to play to a full house in church.
However, We have noticed that our page in our local parish magazine “Focus” has the start time as 8pm.
So just to clarify we are due to start at 7.30pm.
If you know of other coming to the concert please pass the word around– we wouldn’t want to disappoint anyone!
These two smiley faces are of conductors David and Sarah. David you may know, he’s our deputy conductor and Sarah Leeves takes the baton for Heathfield Silver Band. Last week they took a joint rehearsal of 56 players at our concert venue of Wadhurst Parish Church.They have been working hard pulling together to put on an extraordinary concert raising funds for Cancer Research UK.
Sarah said, “We have an amazing programme and hope the concert will be a sell out, so that we can raise much needed funds for this excellent cause.”
David said, “Most people have been affected by cancer, either personally or a loved one. Cancer Research UK has helped many face a brighter future than past generations, but the battle is far from over.”
The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets are available from Carillon Cottage in Wadhurst High Street but if you have difficulty getting into Wadhurst then please email us on email@example.com and we’ll get some put by for you. We would love to play to a sell out concert as every penny of profit will go to Cancer Research UK. Please help us to help them.
It occurred to us that you might want to come to our concert on the 22nd April but might have difficulty getting in to Wadhurst or Heathfield to get your tickets. If that’s the case then please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to help. We hope you can make it and have a great musical evening with us and help Cancer Research UK too!!
