NEARLY 50 musicians from Australia, New Zealand and Canada will be performing a light-hearted selection of music at Ashington Community Centre on Saturday, June 28.

Band From Down Under includes many retired people who love to play music, travel and meet people.

Ted Kelly, from Adur Concert Band, said: “Several of the band come from earthquake-stricken Christchurch, while others come from the drought-stricken Outback Australia, so they are very excited to be visiting such a beautiful part of England.”

Adur Concert Band members will be joining the group on stage after the inverval.

Adur Concert Band musical director Andrew Burchfield was a student of Band From Down Under musical director Mark Walton at Chichester College.

Paula Streeter, conductor of Petworth Town Band, and Howard Burchfield were also former students.

Entry is £5 on the door. For further information, visit or call 01444 235311.
