Christmas is Coming…

The band are already busy in the run-up to Christmas, the first concert with the Preston Musical Comedy Society being a huge sell-out success at the Preston Playhouse. The band also played carols at the Christmas Tree Lighting in the village on Tuesday followed by the traditional carolling around the streets. This Saturday, the band again join forces with Preston Orpheus Choir for a Festive Christmas at St Michael and All Angels Church. On the 17th, the band are hoping for a full house at Lowther where the band will be joined by the junior band for their annual concert.

Kirkham Christmas Lights

The junior band braved wintry showers on Friday evening to play carols for the Kirkham Christmas Lights switch-on. Having done several ‘solo’ engagements this season, they will be reunited with the senior band at the annual Christmas concert on 17th December at Lowther Pavilion. Please note, tickets sell out for this event, so book early!

Freckleton Youth Band Entertain at Ribby Hall

Freckleton Youth Band provided the musical entertainment for guests arriving at a charity ball on Saturday 11th November. Performing in the entrance to the Woodland Suite at Ribby Hall, Kirkham, they played throughout the pre-meal drinks at the URPotential event, kicking off the proceedings in style.

Come and see us on Friday 24th November in Kirkham, where we will be getting into the Christmas spirit playing carols at the Town End for the switch-on of the Christmas lights.

Freckleton Youth Band Concert

Freckleton Youth Band performed a very successful concert to a packed house at Holy Trinity Church on Friday 20th October.  Playing a mixture of film music, marches, arrangements of folk songs and some staple junior band favourites, they were warmly received by the audience and the church, who were raising money for a new path outside the church.  We were very happy to make a new link within the community, and plans are afoot for another concert early next year!

Freckleton Club Day 2017

Once again the band took part in the Freckleton Club Day procession on a hot and sunny Saturday, and it was good to see so many people come out to support us.

 

Freckleton Youth Band again provided the live music at Bush Lane playing field for the annual Freckleton Half Marathon and Fun Run.  In contrast to last year, when the weather let us down, this year saw wall to wall sunshine and a fantastic crowd. The Youth Band played a range of music, from classical to pop and film themes, and played to their usual high standard. Another successful performance to add to our ever-increasing list!
