"Jingle Bells? You are joking!"
As is usual during the festive season, bands go out and raise funds by playing Christmas Carols at supermarkets and the like and hopefully spread a bit of festive cheer. This year is no different. The City of Bristol Brass Band's first Christmas gig was on Friday 31st August in the Valco supermarket! For those of you who don't have Sky, that is the supermarket featured in the British sit-com "Trollied" and last Friday they were filming their Christmas special.
The first of 3 invites to the National Trust, Tyntesfield, today saw two groups from our band perform. It was cold, but when you have been doing Christmas Carolling as long as some of us then you know how to keep warm. Spot the guy with tights on!!!
We are there again next weekend so make sure you come along and listen to the band and browse the Christmas Market.
