John Coles Park, Chippenham

The family fun day was unfortunately cancelled for 2013, but Chippenham Town Band were still invited to play a slightly later set in the band stand of John Coles Park. News of the fun day cancellation hadn’t yet reached some members of the public so the turnout of an audience was a lot higher than expected for a damp Sunday afternoon! We all put on a brave face and played our best – and were met with plentiful applause, particularly after “Locomotion.” Various marches, theme tunes and swing numbers also made an appearance.

Some of the audience even had ice-creams despite the less-than-summery weather!
