Honiton Band aims for festive notes
18:30 07 December 2012
You can get into the Christmas spirit this year and help to raise funds for ‘Friends of the Beehive’, by going along to Honiton Band’s annual Christmas Concert.
It’s being held on Saturday, December 8, at St Paul’s Church, from 7.30pm and promises to be a festive evening of music, carol singing, readings and song.
A small group from the Sheldon Singers, which frequently supports the band’s charity concerts and are always a favourite with the audiences, will be performing during the evening.
There will be a prize draw held and tickets, which will be available on the door (children under 16 free), also include a mince pie and a glass of wine, or fruit juice, if preferred.
So you can get your Christmas off to a good start and support your local community at the same time.
For further details, ring the band secretary Sharon Dibsdall, on 01404 44763.
