Contest is over… bring on the summer!
Well, we have slogged away at the mighty St. Magnus over the last few months, and it was a fantastic day at Torquay on the 9th March. The band played extremely well and everyone enjoyed a beautifully sunny day, after playing first! 8th place was a great result and the band stay in the Championship section for another year. What a great achievement for all involved. The bus was packed full of family and friends, supporting the band, all the way to the stage. The full results for the West Of England can be found at: http://4barsrest.com/news/detail.asp?year=&criteria=Results%3A&id=18322#.UyoSZvl_t1Y
We now look forward to a great summer season, with lots planned. Take a look at the events list on the main website: http://www.sherbornetownband.co.uk/events.html
The band are looking forward to an exciting program of music over the coming months – to give you a flavour – The Muppets, Cry of the Celts, Glenn Miller, and many more! We will be in and around Sherborne throughout the summer as well as visiting Wells, Shepton Mallet, Martock and Midsomer Norton.
The annual band dinner will see us all get together and enjoy a well deserved drink or two, and we are saying a grand farewell to our long standing Musical Adviser / Director, Paul Cosh. Paul has been involved with the band for many, many years and his father was a founding member. His work and efforts will be hugely missed and we wish him a relaxing “retirement”!
