    Leyland are delighted to be able to host the St Austell Town Band (conducted by Gareth Pritchard) when the two bands perform a summer "PROMS in the PARK" event at the beautiful Astley Hall, Chorley on the 6th June 2009.

The celebrations begin with St Austell performing from 6.30pm in the Hall's stunningly restored walled garden followed by Leyland taking to the stage at 7.30pm. The finale set brings both bands together for a massed effort culminating in "Jerusalem" and "Pomp & Circumstance No.1".

    The St Austell Band are in the North West to compete at the famous Whit Friday March Contests held in Tameside and Saddleworth on the previous evening, 5th June. Iain Mcknight (Eb Bass with Leyland) hails from Cornwall and has strong connections with St Austell Town Band. He has been instrumental in bringing the bands together. All at Leyland are looking forward to meeting and performing with St Austell, sharing what will be a fantastic evening of music making.
