Conservative Club Xmas Concert

Jingle All the Way

Our annual Christmas concert at the Conservative Club in Marple was a huge success and the band played to a packed house. The festive Yuletide performance was a triumph of Christmas music enjoyed by all. There was no shortage of tinsel and the obligatory collection of Christmas hats which were donned in the second half of the concert. Lots of good audience participation in The Twelve Days of Christmas – not a ‘Bah Humbug’ to be heard anywhere in the room.

Thank you to all who came along to support us and helped get Christmas off to a very jolly start. Thank you also for helping us raise over £600 which, as always, all goes toward new music, instruments and running your Marple Band. Many congratulations to the person who won the Christmas Star Prize Draw luxury hamper.

The band will be playing carols in Marple again on Christmas Eve from 10:00am so please do come down and say hi. From all the players and committee at The Marple Band, we wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year for 2016.

Please see our concerts page for 2016 engagements.
