Popular favourite returns for Music and Song Evening

Nottingham Rotary Club are happy to announce
the return of the Long Eaton Silver Prize Band for their 5th Music
and song evening on the Friday the 27th September at 7.30pm in the
Lutterell Hall in West Bridgford.

Under the leadership of Musical Director Sharon Stansfield the LESPB is much in demand for its entertaining concerts including some very talented songsters in the band as well as winning awards among its peers.

Sharon joined the band at the age of 9 sharing a cornet with her brother and went on to become a soloist for some of the leading bands in the region. Finally she rejoined the band in 2000 as musical director.

The band has achieved much success since then qualifying for the national finals in 2002 and becoming the Third Section National Champions in 2006 and first for a woman.

But perhaps the band is most proud of being a genuine community band with 39 players in the Senior Band,  a thriving Training Band of 49 players  ( from 8 to 86) and a Novice Group band of 10 players that start from age 5 upwards.

Tickets are £10 including refreshments and all proceeds go towards the club’s local good causes including the homeless and drug and alcohol rehabilitation activities. Tickets available from James Thornhill 07803 904786 or Tony Poulter 07758 162784.  More information from www.rotaryclubofnottingham.org or our facebook page.
