March Brass 2000 hope to raise �1,000 for church restoration with charity concert
THE restoration of St Mary’s Church is to receive another boost as March Brass 2000 prepare for a charity concert to raise money for the rebuilding project.
The performers hope to raise �1,000 for the church, which has now begun an extraordinary rise from the ashes after being gutted by fire last year.
March Brass 2000 will entertain crowds at St Peter’s Church on March 5, with the concert set to start at 7.30pm.
Musical Director, Nigel Sutterby, will conduct a varied programme for all ages, with numbers including “All that Jazz”, “Wandrin Star” and a host of other familiar tunes.
The interval will also see March Brass Junior Band, conducted by Hannah Furlong, perform a series of pieces.
The band, which was formed in 1891, have declared themselves fully behind the rebuilding of St Mary’s and hope to perform in the newly restored church in future.
For concert tickets - priced at �5 - please contact Peter Sutterby, chairman, on 01354 655705 or Deb Watts, secretary, on 01354 655429. Tickets will also be available on the night.
