This year marks the band’s 20th birthday, which was celebrated with a concert in October.

The Christmas concert is the final concert with the band for musical director Tom Martin, who is stepping down having shaped the band to its current high standard over the last nine years, culminating in a Gold at the National Concert Band Festival last year.

The band is proud to support Macmillan Cancer Research and, to date, has raised £12,000.

The Christmas Concert is an opportunity to say thank you to supporters and to start the season with a celebration of music.
