Wolverton Town Band's first public performance of the year was a great success on Saturday 10 May. The concert, which took place in the lovely and historic venue of St George’s Church in Wolverton, was an absolute feast of brass music and was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience.

The event was in preparation for the band’s part in Wolverton’s First World War centenary twinning trip to Belgium next month. The band played the music it has chosen to perform in Ploegsteert, including a mixture of marches, classical pieces, film music and tunes associated with the two World Wars.

The concert was introduced by Brian White, Mayor of Milton Keynes, and Jane Lloyd, the band’s Musical Director, gave Councillor White the opportunity to conduct!

The audience was also treated to a special appearance from the Pink Panther playing the trombone, and the band’s Scott Forrest appeared in full Highland regalia and showed off his previously hidden talent for playing the bagpipes.

The event was a truly community occasion with refreshments and a raffle during the interval.

Money raised from the concert will go to supporting the twinning weekend so that the costs for those going next month can be kept as low as possible.
