Sorry for the delay in getting the website up to date. We’ve had a rather long summer break and we’ve been working hard behind the scenes preparing for a busy Autumn season. It seems ages ago since the very well received concert in Annesley and the weather affected concert at Nottingham Castle – remember the rainy season we had instead of a summer? There will be some pictures from the Castle Concert available in a little while.

 

Right now though plans are being finalised for the Musical Extravaganza at Nottingham Royal Concert Hall on Saturday 13th of October 2007, when the Police Band will be joined by Nottinghamshire Police Pipe Band PLUS The Band of The Royal Anglian Regiment (TA) PLUS Carlton Brass Band PLUS Carlton Male Voice Choir PLUS the cast of the Gang Show!! This is our contribution to the Scout Movement’s celebration of its centenary. Gary has stopped sleeping completely now as final arrangements are being made! It promises to be a night to remember.

 

Watch this space for a review of this concert, which will be one of the biggest undertakings in the Band’s long history.

 

Charity Concert at Kneesall Church for the Nottinghamshire Police Aid Convoy

 

Saturday 4th April 2007 saw the band return to Kneesal Church for a now annual sell out concert in aid of the Nottingham Police Aid Convoy – a group of people who take much needed aid to war torn parts of the world.

 

The concert was our musical mix of styles and moods interspersed by witty anecdotes supplied as always by MD Gary Glover!!

 

The packed church – which doubles as a community centre – was updated on the continuing work of the Police Aid Convoy, and informed about its latest expedition.

 

The musical extravaganza concluded with all the favourite music from the Last Night of the Proms – accompanied by party – poppers going off and energetic flag waving. The singing was enthusiastic and the distant roof was very nearly raised. Encores were demanded and supplied. A thoroughly well entertained crowd cheered the band to the rafters.

 

The Band has been booked to appear again next year – it is always encouraging to finish an engagement by being invited back. We are all looking forward to our return.
