Western Park, Leicester
Our first foray into Leicesters parks saw the band perform at Western Park bandstand. Very helpful council workers not only brought chairs for the band but also set out several rows for the audience to add to the existing park benches, and these were soon filled with an appreciative audience. They were entertained with a wide selection of pieces from traditional marches like Colonel Bogey to film and TV music including the themes to the BBC programmes Pot Black and Soldier, Soldier. Quieter pieces such as Unchained Melody and Ashokan Farewell contrasted with exciting music like Devils Galop (theme tune to Dick Barton, Special Agent on the radio) and all were introduced by our regular compere Eddie who kept the audience informed while the band wrestled with the music in rather blustery conditions. A very enjoyable afternoon and we hope to return again next year.
