Wolverton Town Band’s not so secret performance

Wolverton Town Band recently performed at the town’s Secret Garden on Stratford Road. The performance was one of a series of musical events held over the summer and provided local residents with a relaxing Sunday afternoon’s music. Hundreds of people supported the event with many bringing along picnics and everyone enjoying the music in the seclusion of the beautiful community garden.

The Secret Garden is on a site formerly occupied by four houses built by the London & Birmingham Railway Company in the 1840s. The houses were for some of the senior management of the Railway Works, including the local Stationmaster. They were occupied until the late 1960s when they were demolished and the area became neglected.  A group, which eventually became Wolverton Secret Garden Society, was formed and turned the land into a community garden.

Wolverton Town Band is interested in hearing from anyone who would like to play a brass instrument, whether they're a learner or someone with lots of experience. The band has a long and proud history going back over 100 years. Today, it is a friendly group of players who love playing music and want to keep the brass band tradition alive in Wolverton.

New members of any standard are always welcome. Rehearsals include a session each week for learners and anyone else who would like to join in. Membership is free and more information is available on the band's website at: http://www.wolvertontownband.org.uk/joinusitsfree.htm
