We are thrilled to welcome a host of new signings to Allerton Brass, who have joined over the last 6 months. They are already in the full swing of things and will be in action this Saturday, 10th December at the Tung Auditorium!
The band have had a number of concerts over the summer, in Botanic Gardens Southport; Farnworth Widnes; Bishop Eton Parish Celebrations and with out friends at the Merseyside Thursday Club, before our final performance of the period at Vale Park New Brighton.
On Sunday 23rd June, we managed to play 2/3rds of our concert at Botanic Gardens before the rain spoilt our fun, but the audience were having a great time until then!
On Saturday 29th June, we played in the glorious heat for the Farnworth Primary School for their Summer Fair. Afterwards we were allowed to cool down before giving a short performance.
The following day we were back in action playing at the Bishop Eton Church Parish Celebrations to start off the day!
On Thursday 4th July we celebrated Independence Day with our friends at Merseyside Thursday Club, we had great fun and some of the members of the club joined in with a Sing-Song towards the end of the night.
We have one final performance this period at Vale Park New Brighton on Sunday 28th July, 2:30pm. We would love to see you there!
On Friday 14th June the band took part in the annual Whit Friday Marches event.
We only managed to make 5 contests but we had a great time and even managed to come away with 1st place prizes in the 2nd Section at 3 venues!
On Saturday 4th May the band delighted the audience at The Capstone Theatre with our programme Galaxies. Along with the great display running behind the band, the band were in fine form and look forward to our next performances at the Anglican Cathedral and the Annual Whit Friday Marches.
The band are enjoying a well earned break from a Sunny Summer period of music making.
After our Annual Themed Spring concert in the Capstone Theatre back in May, we added a performance at Light Night at the Metropolitan Cathedral to our list of prestigious Liverpool buildings that we have played at.
The week later we took part in the Whit Friday marches in Saddleworth. The band had a busy June as well, as we took part in the filming of a new film, Perfectly Frank; played at Hale Carnival, Farnworth Primary School; performed at Vale Park and Botanic Gardens in their band series, and even managed to fit in a recording!
On Saturday 28th July, we had the pleasure of performing at another great Liverpool Landmark as we played for Clair and David’s wedding at the Liver Building!
We now have another day off before we start preparing for our next performances at St. George’s Hall on Thursday 23rd August at the “Best of British” Last Night of The Proms and our National Finals performance in Cheltenham on Sunday 16th September.
