Christmas Season Starts

VBS Poynton Band started the season of christmas concerts with a charity concert put on by the Vernon Building Society in aid of The Wellspring (Centre for the Disadvantaged and Homeless) and Stockport CP (who support children and adults with physical and learning disabilities).

The concert featured a number of Christmas classics ranging from traditional items, including some very rousing carol singing by the audience, to the more modern items such as David Essex's A Winter's Tale. The band even featured its very own snowman in the guise of our Eb Bass soloist Mr Jimmy Tew who played an up-tempo version of Frosty the Snowman.

The concert raised well in excess of £1000, so a very big thankyou to all who came to the concert.

The band will be working hard of the next 2 or 3 weeks with numerous Festive Concerts (including two this coming weekend). Please view our Concerts page for details and we hope to see you at some of the events!
