Picnic in the Park

Jun 9, 2018

The Picnic in the Park on Saturday 10th June was an outstanding success.

The Marple Band and Hawk Green Band entertained the crowds at Marple Memorial park from 2:30 until 5:00pm in superb June sunshine. This first concert of this kind in the park is not likely to be the last; based on superb feedback from an enthusiastic audience.

Thanks go to the Marple and Hawk Green Bands who played a set of 30 minutes each, followed by a massed band for the final three songs. A wide range of music from traditional to pop music was played. Thank you to Sue Ingham and the bandroom committee who helped ensure its success. There was a collection at the end to raise funds for the upkeep of the band room.
