Barnes children’s literature festival 11 May

It was a chilly morning on Barnes Green but players from the Band brightened the Children’s Literature Festival with a selection of family-friendly music. The Band’s flute section made their debut performance as an ensemble and crowds gathered to hear favourites including Mary Poppins, The Mexican Hat Dance, and There Once Was an Ugly Duckling complete with realistic quacks! Thanks to everyone for their support.

Daryl and Andrea joined other local societies on Saturday at the OSO Arts Centre to help promote the range and diversity of community organisations in Barnes.

It was a very worthwhile morning meeting new people and coming up with ideas for future collaborations with other arts and musical societies in the area.
We didn’t manage to recruit a French Horn or Euphonium player though. They must be out there somewhere!
