Alford Silver Band entertains Gardens

THE Alford Silver Band returned to Skegness for their latest open-air concert at the weekend.

Bright sunshine ensured their performance in Tower Gardens went off without a hitch.

The band played a varied and imaginative programme, including popular marches, an overture by Rossini and works from film and theatre.

One of the highlights of the show was a trumpet solo by principal cornettist Josh Wilkinson who, having retrieved his music stand and score, which had been blown down by a se-breeze, recovered his composure and finished his solo with a flourish to a positive storm of applause.
