Henry, performing our solo feature - The Acrobat
Later in the year, on Saturday 7th May, we once again took part in the annual entertainment contest held at Wood Farm Brewery. The weather report hadn't sounded too good, but luckily
the rain held off until ... it was our turn to play. Unfortunately there was a downpour of rain, complete with lightning during our performance. This year our solo feature was performed by our principal trombone player Henry, who continued to play stood
outside the marquee even though he was getting drenched, until one very kind member of the audience held his umbrella over Henry's head trying to protect him from the worst of the rain.
We received lots of positive comments from the adjudicators, but with there being more competition with an increased amount of 3rd section bands entering this year, we were just out of the prizes, being awarded a very creditable 4th place.
