Wetherby Silver Open The Bandstand Season (30th April)

Discussion in 'The Auditorium - Concert Details' started by Temporary Noble, Apr 27, 2006.

  1. Wetherby and District Silver Band open the Wetherby Riverside Bandstand season on Sunday the 30th April 2006 (starts 2.30 pm).

    Wetherby Silver has been working hard since the areas to assemble an entertaining program for the first concert of the season on the Wetherby bandstand. The program will include Mack & Mabel, Famous British Marches, Southern Cross (Baritone Solo), Stardust, Pastyme with Henry (by tmp's Straightmute)...

    Wetherby is very proud to have its own Bandstand in a picturesque setting alongside the river Wharfe. The bandstand was built with money raised by the people of Wetherby and completed in the year 2000. The Wetherby Riverside Bandstand Trust organise a full concert programme, with Brass Bands playing every Sunday from May to September. Providing the weather is fine, the concerts usually attract audiences of around 300 people or more. Bring your own deck chairs!!

    You may have seen the bandstand on television, as Hade Edge's performance was filmed for their documentary, screened on ITV in 2005. We certainly saw a few familiar faces in the audience!

  9. Wetherby Silver Band played to a large audience for the first concert in the Wetherby Riverside Bandstand season. Thanks to the tMPers and members of Yorkshire Co-Op and York RI for depping (we were short because there was a Stag weekend for the Guy who's marrying our solo trombone player!).

    The collection taken during the performance usually supplements the Band's fee, but on this occasion, the collection was for the Stuart Strange Vasculitis Trust. A close friend of the band is suffering from a rare blood condition known as Wegener's Granulomatosis. The Stuart Strange Vasculitis Trust supports sufferers, and funds research into this rare condition, which is thought to affect only 1500 people in the UK.
