NANTWICH SQUARE

In bright April sunshine we played our first gig of the season in Nantwich Square.



Nantwich Concert Band are invited by Nantwich Council to play for the shoppers in the Square on several Saturdays throughout year. We love playing in front of our home crowd, seeing old band members and picking up new ones.  Two new players are thinking of joining after hearing us play on Saturday!


Would you like to join the Band? contact: Musical Director Nick Birch
Find us on Facebook


Our MD Nick Birch chose some brilliant new pieces to add to our repertoire, some of which we performed here for the first time.  He likes to push us, so some are challenging but all are fun.


HOPE YOU ALL ENJOYED IT

Presentation of Cheque at our Musical Evening

Our recent Musical Evening was a perfect occasion for the  Nantwich Concert Band and the Nantwich Young Voices, to present Cancer Research UK with a cheque for the money raised at our recent Charity Concert at St Mary's Church Nantwich.  
We raised a magnificent
£454.62 for Cancer Research
Well done to all those who worked so hard to make it happen and a special thanks to all at St Mary's for letting us play in such a beautiful setting.

Chester Bandstand 2016


What a fabulous setting!
On a busy Saturday in August, down by the river in Chester, Nantwich Concert Band play in the beautiful Victorian Bandstand.  This was the first of what we hope will be an annual event.

Worleston Fete 2016

What a contrast from last Saturday!
Worleston Fete
was hot and sunny with a great crowd under beautiful blue skies.

The band played through our summer playlist conducted by Nick's dad Kevin - thanks Kevin!  Nick's in Italy playing his trombone (anyway that's what he told us he was doing, although he could always be on a beach somewhere!)
