Portland Port by floodlight
The bands last visit to Portland Port this year to entertain the passangers before leaving. It was the first time the band had played by floodlight but it did make the area more picturesque. The band is getting ready for the big bang from the canon as the ship prepares to leave. Hands over ears is always a good idea

Band social evening

The social evening was arranged as a time to have a break, after working hard at extra practices in preparation for the farewell concert with Adam conducting the band as our conductor for the last time.

The social evening was also a chance for Kevin Goodwin our new conductor to meet the band socially. Kevin has been helping the band for many years as a player and recently as a conductor. We are all looking forward to Kevin conducting the band.
