Carols, The White Hart, Atworth (17 December)
Brass bands are always associated with pubs to some degree, and Corsham Band is no exception. As in previous years a small number of the band went to the 'local' to play carols and entertain drinkers on Sunday evening. The evening was a very anticipated one as the landlords hold their annual Christmas Draw and the inside of the pub is jam-packed with prizes and revellers hoping to get lucky. With drinks flowing, the band played carols alongside the sweet singing from the bar!

Concert, Conservative Club, Westbury (16 December)
And so the Christmas frivolities continue ... a return visit to the Westbury Conservative Club this time where the audience was yet again treated to a joyful Christmas programme and a bunch of carols to sing along to. It seemed like the club-goers were certainly in the mood before the band even turned up, and the festive atmosphere was plain to hear. It was also evident that the crowd in Westbury on Saturday night could certainly give the audience in Corsham (at the band Christmas concert last weekend) a run for their money with regards to their version of the '12 Days of Christmas'.

Christmas Concert, Corsham Town Hall (10 December)
The cold and the snow could not keep our audience away from the highlight of the Corsham Band calendar. With crackers, party poppers, balloons and tinsel at the ready the band played carols with fabulous audience carol singing raising the roof. Forgetting the miserable weather outside, those that attended enjoyed an afternoon of merriment at the (very) festive concert. The children sang for their treats from Father Christmas and the participation from everyone for '12 Days of Christmas 'can be outdone by no one! Many congratulations to Kay Cadby who won 'Most Improved Player of the Year', a well deserved trophy recognising her progress since joining the band in March this year. Also congratulations to new band secretary Helen Turnbull who received the trophy for being the Bandsperson of the year (voted for by the members of the band). A huge thank you goes to Claire Urmston who stepped in to conduct the band at the very last minute as our MD, Colin, could not wade through the snow in Wales to get to Corsham this weekend.
