Christmas is round the corner

It’s almost time to get out there and join in the Christmas fun… We have just one more main rehearsal and

Suitably Festive!

then we begin the first of our seasonal engagements starting with a visit to our friends at All Saints, just across the border into Devon, for their Annual Christmas Concert on Wednesday, 8th December. We love taking part in this event which by all accounts is already a sell out as numbers have had to be restricted this year for obvious reasons. As well as the main band, our trainees will be playing a couple of pieces on their own, led by their conductor, Ellis Holt. They have come on in leaps and bounds and we are all looking forward to hearing them and cheering them on.
On Saturday, 11th December we will be playing carols outside Tesco in Seaton, from 2.00 pm. Beforehand we are treating ourselves to bacon butties and hot drinks at Pebbles Restaurant where we are always made most welcome – it’s the nearest we can get to a social event for band members.
Our next outing will be on Sunday, 19th December when we have been invited to play carols at a church service to be held at Weycroft just outside Axminster commencing at 5.00 pm. This is a new event and venue for us and we are pleased to be taking part.
We round off our Christmas with two further events, both in the open air in Broad Street, Lyme Regis. On Thursday, 23rd December we will be joining the Rotary Club (and usually the whole population of Lyme Regis!) for carols around the Christmas Tree at the bottom of town from 7.00 pm. We will then be back under the Christmas Tree for a final carol session on Christmas Eve from 11.00 am, weather permitting.
It’s going to be a busy but very enjoyable time – we are hopeful there will be some photographs to follow. Gilly
