Coffee and open morning on Saturday July 5 at South Molton Assembly Rooms.

RAISE a cup or a horn with South Molton Town Band at a special coffee and opening morning on Saturday (July 5).

Anyone who would like to find out more about playing in the band or try their hand at a musical instrument is welcome to drop in to the Assembly Rooms from 10am and have a go.

Band members will be on hand to chat and show how it is done. The aim of the morning is to give people an opportunity to find out more about the band, and to take part in the wonderful hobby of making music together, regardless of age or experience.

The band was formed more than a century ago and still performs at venues around the region. The Town Band usually rehearses on Tuesdays and Thursday’s and the junior or training band on Mondays.

New members are very welcome in either. Instrument and music is provided, and all tuition is free. For more information, call Ray Kingdon on 01769 573113, Gil Taylor 01392 438840 or Steve Simpson 01271 344271.
