Blackwell Concert Band

Blackwell Concert Band, now based in Catshill near Bromsgrove, is about to embark on an incredibly busy 2013 playing season.

With a record number of bookings, the band is out playing most weekends at a wide variety of venues in Staffordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire and the West Midlands.

Highlights of this year’s events include entertaining tourists at the bandstand in Stratford-Upon-Avon, entertaining cider and beer drinkers at Bromsgrove Beer Festival and playing to peacocks at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens in Edgbaston!

The band will also play at many local events including Burcot Fete and at Blackwell Club’s annual Christmas Eve celebration.

Blackwell Concert Band is a huge supporter of Macmillan Cancer Support and has, in the last two years, raised more than £3,000 through charity concerts and collections at different events.

This year, the band will be hosting a musical evening at St Andrew’s Church in Barnt Green on November 30, with all proceeds going towards supporting this very worthwhile charity. More information will be available nearer the time, but please put the date into your diaries now!   

The band is always on the lookout for new players (all abilities and instruments welcome). Please contact Vicky Stock (Band Secretary) at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or on 07845 897760.
