In contrast to recent years the day of Cublington Fête, 14th June, was pleasantly warm and dry, if overcast at times. As usual the fête was held in the large garden of The Old Rectory, where a small marquee was set up to protect the band should it rain. Unfotunately neither Claire Lawrence nor Rob Wicks were available to conduct, so we were lucky to be able to call upon the services of Harvey Baigent instead.
As usual the Band played a variety of light music to entertain the crowds, including Strike Up the Band, The Beatles (arranged by John Higgins), Puttin’ On the Ritz, The Muppet Show Theme, Can You Feel the Love Tonight from The Lion King, Dancing Round the Nursery by Rob Wiffin, and selections from My Fair Lady and Les Misérables.
A live band does much to add to the atmosphere of these events, and we are always pleased to come and play, expecially if the weather is nice.
