CD Recording

Just a reminder that on Sunday 8th September we’re doing the additional recordings for our CD ie, Oregon, Spartacus, The Water is Wide and, potentially, some other pieces. Again it will take place in Barrington Village Hall. There will be a rehearsal on Tuesday 3rd September in Langport in place of Thursday 5th, and an additional rehearsal in Barrington on Friday 6th. The band is not required to attend on Saturday 7th, which is when Mike and Dave will be setting up the equipment for our all-day session (10am to 5pm) on Sunday 8th.

Thorney Lakes Proms

Latest – 1pm – Friday 9th August. Sadly, this event has been cancelled due to the high winds and heavy rain forecast.

This coming Saturday, 10th August, is the annual Music by the Lakes (Proms evening) at Thorney Lakes Caravan and Camping Park, Thorney, Langport, TA10 0DW. Please arrive at the marquee at 5.45pm for a 6.30pm start. Remember to allow plenty of time for parking and walking to the band marquee. Tickets (the proceeds of which, this year, go to Bridgwater Cancer Research UK) are normally priced at £10 – band members are free, but not their family – but can usually be purchased in advance at a reduced price from Thorney Lakes Reception. It would be advisable to bring a light for your stand, if you have one, and a torch for later in the evening. Feel free to bring a raincoat, just in case. Oh, and don’t forget your pegs – essential for the forecast windy weather.

For those band members who’ve not played at the Thorney Lakes Proms before, we normally open the evening with a 30-45 minute session. This is then followed by a long break, during which there are other musical performances, before we play the final session of the evening. You may wish to bring a picnic for the interval. It’s quite an occasion and most of the people in the audience bring along a picnic (and some even bring gazebos, bunting, tables, candelabras, lanterns, BBQs, wine, beer, blankets…).
