Brass band to play Blackfriars

A BRASS band will be performing at Blackfriars Theatre on Sunday.

The Foss Dyke Band are presenting an evening of music from a wide range of genres at Boston’s Spain Lane venue.

It will be the first visit to the theatre by the 30-year-old first section brass band.

Organisers promise musical director Paul Murrell will lead the band through a thrilling programme of old brass band favourites and exciting new repertoire.

Founded in 1986 when it split from the North Hykeham band which had existed since 1974, it gained promotion to the Championship Section in seven years.

The group moved to its own purpose built band room, on the Waddington village playing fields in the early 90s.

The band often contests three times a year in January, March and in the autumn.

It also has regular concerts at the Drill Hall in Lincoln, Terry O’Toole Theatre in North Hykeham as well as now having a commitment to a charity concert each year.

In addition it has a full programme of regular engagements including Last Night of the Proms concerts, entertaining the crowds at the RAF Waddington International Airshow and playing for BBC Radio.

Show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £12 (£10 conc).
