Southport’s Botanic Brass Bands Summer Concert Appeal! June 1st, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments WILL THE BANDS PLAY ON? A long standing Southport tradition is about to be lost! We have an exciting, varied programme planned for this year, including Wingates Brass Band on the 8th June. This year will be the last year of the Botanic Gardens Brass Band concert season unless new sponsorship can be found. Sefton have reluctantly withdrawn funding for the concerts with immediate effect due to spending cuts and, whilst we envisage a full programme for this year – the 55th season – there will be no money left in the pot for future years. The Southport & District Brass Band Association are therefore appealing for prospective sponsors interested in ensuring the future of the brass band concerts to make themselves known as soon as possible. This can be done by contacting the Secretary, Christine on 01704 220806 or 07850130803 or by visiting our website at Bands in the Park Website and using the contact us link. Please if you don’t want to see this family friendly summer tradition lost – please get in touch if you can offer assistance in any way!
