Our traditional Carols around the tree.
A great turnout from the village and let’s Hope everyone has a very happy Christmas and a great New year……..
We had a great night going around the pubs in Thame and getting everyone into the festive spirit with a few Christmas Carols!
Well a nice little warm-up to Christmas with a few Carols for the residents of Pinewood Gardens followed by a lovely Chilli cooked by Clive Guthrie! We had a guest appearance from our Musical Director, Dave Pegram, on tenor horn………don’t give up the day job Dave! 😂😂
The band performed at the annual entertainment Contest at the Marlborough School in Woodstock. The band gave a really solid performance and were placed 4th in their section which contained Championship, First & Second section bands.
The Band performed at the Community Awards evening in the marquee at Whites Field. The event was organised and run by Chinnor Parish Council and recognised local residents in our Community that volunteer their services in order to support and help many associations and community groups within our Village. It was amazing to see how many volunteers we have in our local community and the amount of time they give to volunteering is astounding – Chinnor really is a great community. The band was really proud to see their Musical Director, Dave Pegram, receive an award for his commitment to the Arts.
Again the sun shone and Mill Meadows was again packed with an audience enjoying the fantastic setting by the River Thames. The Band gave a great performance and received lots of great feedback on the day. It was an absolute scorcher of a day and the whole band then retired to the Waterside Bistro in Benson for a bite to eat and a drink or two!
A firm favourite in the band’s diary that kicks off their Summer season. Again the sun shone and there was a great crowd in attendance. The local School children gave a fantastic dance performance accompanied by the band playing the Floral Dance. A typically British Street Fayre……..
The Band had a bit of a ‘Jolly’ today when they attended the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury to see Grimethorpe Colliery band in concert. Inspired by their great playing they then had a bite to eat and a few drinks at good old Prezzos!
The Band boarded the coach early on Sunday morning for the annual trip to Stevenage for the Southern Counties Area Contest. The day was a great success with the band being placed 6th in their section for their performance of Ex Terra Lucem and also winning an award for the best Bass section! It was then back to the local Indian for a Post Contest Curry
