Children’s Hospice South West Concert – St Mary’s Walkhampton

Everyone was delighted to welcome The Stannary Brass Band to St Mary’s Church Walkhampton for a concert to support Children’s Hospice South West on Saturday 19th September 2015. A packed church was treated to a programme featuring a selection of tunes arranged for brass in the first half of the concert, and our own “mini last night of the Proms” in the second half.
