The apparent fallow period between the end of September 2017 and May 2018 draws to a close as the new 2018 season of intense public activity kicks off. But of course along with our now traditional public events during this period- Bradford Roots, Mount Pleasant Xmas Extravaganza, Boxing-Day, etc, behind the scenes, intense activity has been taking place every Thursday evening in the practice room, as we have prepared for the Spring, Summer and Autumn onslaught. Much of the programme is similar to every other year, but some exciting new activities have insinuated themselves. The Winchester Mayfest, for example and a different pub dance-out programme which is presently being planned, supported by essential preliminary research by Chris and his team. We hope, of course, we’ll see some, if not all, of you during our travels in 2018 and that you will consider our dedicated effort in the rehearsal space rewards you with a worthy public spectacle, wherever that may be.
