Well, theres no rest for the wicked! Our Autumn Concert might be barely in the sidings but were already got our eye on the rest of the year! Heres a quick picture of our music group who met last week to consider appropriately festive pieces for our fabulous Christmas concerts (on Sunday 15th December - box office opens on Saturday 16th November - more details soon!). As you can see, despite it only being October, they were feeling suitably Christmassy and found lots of music to ensure a truly magical musical Christmas for our audiences!

Now, anyone fancy a mince pie...?๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ

How are you getting to our transport-themed concert today? We were considering bicycles but in the end we decided that a van would be more practical for the staging, 3 timpani, drum kit, concert bass drum, glockenspiel, xylophone, cymbals, extension lead, keyboard, various assorted stands and an audience worth of cheese biscuits and fizzy fruit juice! 

As you can see, were all unloaded now - time to get it all set up! See you later!

It's time for our last clue! Here's your final snippet of rehearsal to help you identify one of the pieces that singer Ray Higgs will be performing at our brilliant Autumn Concert next week. Hopefully this one makes it fairly easy to name the song!

Still not got it? You'd best get a move on and book your tickets now so that you can come along and find out what the song is! We'll see you there!

OK, here's clue no.3! If you've been keeping an eye on our feed, you'll know that we've been giving you musical hints about the identity of one of the songs that we'll be performing in our brilliant Autumn Concert next week with singer Ray Higgs. This is our penultimate clip and we reckon that it's getting relatively easy to work out now - it's a man on (well, in) a mission! Still stuck? Come back tomorrow for the last clue!

Want to hear the whole piece with a singer (instead of like a backing track)? Make sure you book your tickets via our online box office to come along and enjoy the ride!

Jingle Bells?

Posted on Tuesday October 1st, 2019

Right! Here's the second snippet of last week's rehearsal to see if you can identify one of the songs that we'll be performing with singer Ray Higgs at our transport-themed concert next week. This one's slightly longer but if we're honest, it's still not that easy! Would it help if we told you that it's a well-known song from a musical?

If you've worked it out, make sure you post a comment below (look away now if you don't want to know the answer yet!).

PS - it's not too late to get your tickets for the concert - we've got some brilliant toe-tapping music lined up, plus one or two pieces that we're pretty certain you'll *never* guess if you don't come along!

We're incredibly excited to be able to announce that we're going to be joined for our Autumn Concert by singer Ray Higgs who you may remember from last year when he narrated The Night Before Christmas for us. This time round, he'll be singing two transport-related songs for our Trains๐Ÿš‚, Planesโœˆ๏ธ & Automobiles๐Ÿš— concert and we thought it'd be fun to give you some clues as to what one of the songs is! So, here's a little (OK, tiny!) snippet from last week's rehearsal of us practising the song accompaniment - see if you can identify it! We've got 3 more snippets coming this week so if this is a bit too cryptic for you, come back tomorrow for another clue!

PS - recognise it already? Why not share this with your friends to see if they can work it out!

PPS - if you've not already got your tickets for the concert, you can find more info and choose your seats at our online box office here:

Don't miss out - it's going to be a fantastic evening's entertainment!

Well done, Ray xx

2 weeks to go! Weve been working flat out on the music for our Autumn Concert and were really looking forward to showcasing all our hard work on 12th October. Weve got a brilliant programme lined up with some fabulous music - heres a sneaky rehearsal shot of our diligent euphonium section getting their fingers round a particularly fiddly bit in Coronation Scot (the Paul Temple theme for our older listeners!).

If you havent got your tickets yet, take a look at our new online box office where you can pick your perfect seat and get your tickets emailed to you!

Bank holiday Saturday saw us back at the most English of village events. We loved every minute of it. We have to say that we really have never seen a marrow so huge, but in truth the llamas were much prettier. And as always there were so many cakes.... ... See MoreSee Less
