Coronavirus 1st Whitstable Distancing Band 9th April 2020

The show (band) must go on so to continue practice we decided to play Firework by Katy Perry, arranged by Michael Brown. Each player recorded their part and our IT guru, Nick Bryant (Euphonium), 'stitched' it all together. For those of a nervous disposition please look away when our band secretary, David Hancock (Trombone), finishes playing. Well done band.

Carols December 2020

We have played some festive carols at St John's Church Swalecliffe and St Alphege Church Whitstable, all in line with the current Coronavirus regulations. These were our only public engagements this year and were most enjoyable. We are sure we helped to lift the spirits of those who passed by and thank everyone for their applause and ongoing support.
