Showband set to hit the right note at the Festival of Remembrance

By Peter Trollope at

Next month sees the commemoration of  100th anniversary of the end of  ‘The War To All Wars” with two special Remembrance concerts involving the Ashton-on-Mersey Showband.

The Showband has raised almost £1 million for charities since it began in 1973.  All the musicians involved give their time and efforts for free.

The Remembrance Concerts – Stockport Plaza at 2 pm on November 4th and Altrincham Town Hall the following week on November 10th at 7.15 pm in The Town Hall. The venue will be a small, intimate concert and will be played just a few hundred yards away from Chapel Street known as  The Bravest Street in England after 161 men from 60 homes volunteered to serve in the First World War, with 29 killed in action.  Tickets will be limited to 70 for this concert.  Further details can be obtained by ringing 0161 903 9906.
