Rousing music from the Second World War, movie themes and traditional Last Night of the Proms are on the programme of an autumn concert to be performed by Aylesbury Concert Band.

Members will perform at 7.30pm on Saturday (October 3) at Holy Trinity Church in Walton Street, Aylesbury.

The programme will include pieces commemorating the end of the Second World War including Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, as well as classic film favourites such as the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future and the ever popular themes from our iconic British spy, 007 James Bond.

The evening will reach a crescendo with the Last Night of the Proms finale and everyone is invited to take their Union flags to wave.

Tickets are £8 for adults, £6.50 concessions and £20 for a family (up to two adults and two children). They are available from Ayelsbury Vistor Centre in King’s Head Passage, or call 01296 330559 or buy on the door on the night of the concert.

The best place to park for the concert is the Walton Street multi story car park almost opposite the church.

The band currently has 43 active members ranging in age from teenagers to retired people. Instruments include woodwind (flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons), saxophones, brass (horns, ,trumpets, trombones, euphoniums, tubas) and percussion. The band rehearses every Wednesday at the Sir Henry Floyd School.

The band has performed at home and abroad at concerts, carnivals, schools, chuches and civic occasions.
