With almost a full house at the Lympstone Band Centre on Friday 20th April at the band’s latest concert, the band might have to plan ahead for a possibility of having to produce tickets or turn people away in the future such is the increasing popularity of this concert series!

The ‘Friday Night is Film Night’ concert was a huge success, and featured music from ‘Chicken Run’, ‘The Mission’, ‘Robin Hood Prince of Thieves’, ‘Titanic’ and ‘Elvira Madigan’, with a special selection of well known pieces including ‘Orange Juice’ (Concerto D’Aranjuez – by Rodrigo) from ‘Brassed Off!’. The band was most pleased to see new and familiar faces in the audience including members of the cast of Estuary Players from the recent production of ‘Brassed Off!’. With Charlie Fleming in sparkling form, the soloists Colin McEwen, Sandie Heyworth, and Paul Vodden delivering solos in style, and the entire horn section shone with their rendition of the ‘Elvira Madigan’ theme.

Our next concert at the Band Centre will be in the summer, please look out for more details nearer the time or sign up to our newsletter on the website.

We are now rehearsing for another contest, this time in Weston-Super-Mare but also thinking ahead to Exmouth Festival where we will be performing in the Manor Gardens in Exmouth on Thursday 31st May from 7.30pm. Of course the weather will be great so take a stroll down the cycle path and have a listen!
