Cawthorne Band at Christmas

What a Christmas we had!

Cawthorne Band had a wonderful festive period. We joined Cawthorne Choral Society for a spectacular Christmas Concert, ‘The Stars of Christmas’, with a great variety of music and even some enthusiastic audience participation.

We took part in the Cawthorne Christmas tree festival, with a theme of International peace. Each tree was themed around Christmas in a different country. Our tree had a Kenyan theme, decorated with black, green and red, the colours of the Kenyan flag, and many toy African animals:

We enjoyed playing carols at the ‘Spirit of Christmas’ service, where all of the decorated trees were lit up.

There were many traditional carol sing-a-long occasions throughout December too, including lots of the old favourites, and some of the local carols.

We also enjoyed playing at Legacy Church Christmas service, where we even got some help from a passing elf!

Merry Christmas everybody, and a Happy New Year!
