Sorry I haven't posted in a while!
I have been very busy over the last few months after being flooded out in June, the community bands finally got their rehearsal space back at Langley First School and throughout the summer I have  been working up at R.A.F Boulmer running various workshops with the AirPlay 4 Children team and performing at their annual Summer Fair to performing for the Fishermans Mission, performing in back gardens for house parties and playing for a number of charity fundraisers.
Unfortunatley I haven't had time to organise a Help for Heroes event this year however please make donation to the charity through their website as they are always making fantastic progress but rely on funds from the public to keep up their hard work :)
Christmas is just around the corner and so far both community steel bands Pan-omenal Steel and the adult band (to be named "Steel Appeal") will be performing at Whitley Bay St. Nicholas Festival on Saturday 1st Dec times TBC and on Sunday 9th Dec times TBC
Jarrow School Steel Band will be performing outside Jarrow Town Hall on Friday 23rd November for their Christmas Light Switch on from 4.30pm - 5.30pm
Last Christmas the community bands teamed up with Langley First School's Year 4 steel band to put on a Steel Pan Christmas Celebration we are hoping to do the same again this year - Keep a look out for Dates, Times and tickets!
There will be a Calypso Carol Service held at St. Andrews Church on Thursday 20th Dec - a joint concert with Pan-omenal Steel and the Harmony Choir from 7pm tickets will go on sale soon - will keep you posted!
I have been teaching Hand bells in a couple of Whitley Bay schools so watch out for them at the Christmas Markets too!! I guarantee your ears will be ringing like mad after listening to all of us!
More events to come so keep checking!
