Music on the Levels: Concert on 21st May

Our next free concert is a performance by Kingsbury Episcopi Band on Sunday 21 May 2023 at 3.00pm (refreshments from 2.15) in St Mary’s Church, Main Road, Westonzoyland, TA7 0EP.

The thirty piece band will be performing an eclectic range of music based on light entertainment, for example: My Girl, Mack the Knife, My Fair Lady, Whitney Houston, Barnard Castle and Ferry Across the Mersey. The music will certainly resound in the wonderful acoustics of the church.

Kingsbury Episcopi Band

‘We are a concert band, made up of brass and woodwind instruments, originating from the small village of Kingsbury Episcopi in South Somerset, where we rehearse in the village Community Hall on a weekly basis’, says Brian Kelloway, the Musical Director.

He goes on to emphasise the community value of the group. ‘We exist for the pleasure and enjoyment of making music for ourselves and others. The band attends numerous functions each year, which includes concerts, weddings, and other private functions, travelling as far afield as Taunton, Lyme Regis and Minehead.’

The band also gives young people, who may learn an instrument at school but are unable to play in the school band or orchestra, the opportunity to experience the joy of performing.

Arrangements for this concert.

Refreshments (tea, coffee, choice of cakes) are available at a modest charge from 2.15 pm until the start of the concert.

In order to help with the artists’ and other costs a raffle is held. In addition donations are encouraged. It costs around £400 to put on a concert.

Due to current circumstances there is no need to book anymore. Up to now we’ve never exceeded the church’s capacity and never had to turn anyone away but please note, seats are available on a first come, first served basis. From time to time, you may need to ‘budge-up’!
