LIVE MUSIC is coming to Woodley next month, as the town’s concert band returns to the stage.

On Saturday, October 9, Woodley Concert band is hosting Strike Up the Band, its first formal concert since the pandemic began.

The group will be performing a wide-ranging programme at Woodley Baptist Church, with tunes from ABBA, Queen and a range of musicals.

Owen Lloyd, from the group, said: “We’re hoping that it will be a real celebration of our return to live music-making, as well as for the community to be able to enjoy live entertainment again.

“The past 18 months have been challenging for a number of our members for whom music-making is an important part of their life and wellbeing so we’re really excited to finally be able to get back onto the concert stage.”

Mr Lloyd said almost 100 tickets have been sold for the event, but there are still spaces available.

Tickets cost £14 for adults, £12 for over 65s and £5 for under 16s.

The show starts at 7.30pm.
