A small select ensemble of bbb members will play at the Waitrose Community Engagement evening from 7 o/c on Thursday 25 September 2014, at the Wallingford Town Hall.
In part this is the band’s “thank you” to Waitrose and their Community Fund for making a £1500 donation to enable us to buy a much-needed Imperial tuba.
A wide range of brass ensemble music will be played – should be a fun evening!
BRAVO AND THANK YOU (again) – YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE (even if I don’t)!!!

As the meerkat says, “Simples”!!!
Blewbury Brass Band will be giving an open air concert in the Bandstand, Victoria Park, Newbury, on Sunday 14 September from 1500-1700.
Seats will be available, or there is lots of grass to sit on. How about bringing a rug and picnic tea, to enjoy listening to the band playing a wide selection of brass band favourites.
Blewbury Brass Band will be playing at the Upton Fete during the afternoon of Saturday 6 September.
Apart from Blewbury Brass Band, highlights of the fete include a dog show, delicious jams and chutneys, and tea with an extraordinary variety of cake!
We’ve probably all been taught the saying “Watch the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves”. Well, it’s time to put this into action!
The band has just been advised of their first donation through http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk – the grand sum of 60p! OK, that’s not a large amount, but the point is that if all band members and supporters signed up then the band would soon earn HUNDREDS of pounds.
All you need to do is visit http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/blewburybrass, register and install the “Find and Remind” toolbar. The band will then receive a percentage (typically 1% – 2%) of whatever you spend with over 2000 retailers, including Amazon, Argos, Boden, eBay, John Lewis, Sainsburys, Tesco, and Waitrose.
Many thanks for your support!
