April 2020 Events

Jubilee Celebrations!

The Band were delighted to play in Victoria Park, Bath as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, a debut performance for us at this venue.


Despite some inclement weather, the park was busy with activities and passers by, and the trees provided some welcome shelter when necessary.

The Band remained dry in the bandstand, and enjoyed playing appropriate music including Peter's splendid new arrangement 'Patriotica', and 'It's Raining Again' by Supertramp!

15th Anniversary Concert

On Saturday 22nd October 2011, the band celebrated its anniversary by staging a concert in the parish hall. A sizeable audience was entertained with a varied programme, which included some well known pieces such as I Got Rhythm, Anything Goes and The Magnificent Seven, which brought three generations of Cornfords together on the stage! There were also a couple of pieces by the late Goff Richards as a tribute, and Peter led the band for the debut performance of his arrangement "Everyone's Misbehaving". It was a very enjoyable and successful evening.  See the Gallery for more photos!

Steaming into Summer!

The band is now in full swing with a number of summer engagements. The concert at St John's church in Chipping Sodbury for their 727th anniversary was very successful, and the next day saw the band playing on the bandstand in John Coles Park in Chippenham.

Despite blustery weather, we performed on both days at the Castle Coombe Steam Rally, and managed to stay dry! The weather was also a feature at the Chipping Sodbury Festival, the gazebo needing holding down whilst playing! Fortunately there was a good attendance for the event.

The band repertoire continues to expand, the music becoming more challenging, just like the weather conditions!
