We just want to get ahead of the game and announce that, along with our usual spring schedule, we are doing things a bit differently this year.
Our Spring Concert will be a very special one as we are raising money for Cancer Research UK. We have all been close to cancer one way or another and so we have got together with Heathfield Silver Band for a concert in our Parish Church (St Peter and St Paul, Wadhurst) on the Saturday 22nd April for a concert entitled “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, an evening programme of poignant and popular film music performed by over 50 musicians!!! We will be absolutely thrilled if we have a sell out concert and tickets will be on sale from Carillon Cottage in Wadhurst as usual and also from The Pet Food Shop in Heathfield from mid-March so please watch out for our posters popping up in our friendly local shops and outside the Commemoration Hall and Fire Station in Wadhurst.
Have a Wonderful and a very Happy New Year from all of us at Wadhurst Brass Band!!!
Every year our local Rotary Club organise a Christmas Fair and Concert. We play outside the Commemoration Hall and then our training band, L-Plate Brass, play at the concert in church. Here are a few photos from the evening.
What a fantastic weekend!! It all started on Friday evening with carols outside the Commemoration Hall as Rotary got Christmas underway with a market, Santa’s Grotto the village decorated with lights and local business staying open for some evening shopping. And, of course, L-Plate Brass playing in the Rotary concert in church.
Then to Hawkhurst for carols at their Christmas Festival on Saturday lunchtime before getting the hall set up for the Christmas Concert. A big thank you goes to our fabulous audience, packing out the Commem and making it such it such a special night. It really gives us a lift to entertain a full house and we hope everyone left with a smile and looking forward to Christmas Day!!
Finally, yesterday evening, we popped along to Goudhurst to help the Royal Tunbridge Wells Choral Society at their Christmas Concert. Playing a little before the concert proper with our own little spot in the middle and carols for the audience to sing out loud and clear. It brought to a close a long weekend but full of fun, music and song!!
It’s a busy time for the band as tonight we are off to Crowborough for the Town Council’s Carol Service in All Saints Church and then on Friday join us outside the Commemoration Hall for carols at the Rotary Christmas Fair and late night shopping in the village. L-Plate Brass will be part of the concert in the Church (starting at about 7.15).
We are astounded that tickets for our Christmas Concert on Saturday went so quickly but if you missed out on tickets then perhaps make a beeline to St Mary’s Church, Goudhurst on Sunday (11th December) for more Christmas cheer!. We are joining the Royal Tunbridge Wells Choral Society at their Christmas Concert. It is always a lovely place to perform. Tickets, we understand, are available on-line or on the door and the concert in the church starts at 6pm.
