Fundraising for Church Stretton Christmas Lights

Church Stretton Chamber of Trade are bringing a Pig and Cider night to the Silvester Horne Institute on Friday 26th October 2018 at 7pm.  It promises to be an evening of fun and food for everyone. Most importantly, you will help to improve the Church Stretton Christmas lights by raising money to pay for more. Last year you helped raise over £1200 so this year the Town Council is installing more lights in Sandford Avenue and the High Street.  That's an extra boost to Church Stretton's Christmas festivities. The Christmas lights cost more now than they used to because the Council has to employ contractors whereas previously volunteers did the hard work.

A Great Family Evening

You can even have a go at sausage-making yourself! Besides enjoying the baps, you will be helping to brighten the town in the lead-up to Christmas.

Group Picture of Band On The Edge

Band on the Edge was formed in 2013 by a group of keen musicians with different backgrounds. Like most jazz groups, they started out with jazz standards, but were keen to explore many other styles, and their repertoire now includes early ragtime and hot jazz numbers from the twenties, ballads and show songs, 30s and 40s swing that audiences can dance to, Afro jazz, Latin and some jazz rock styles from the 60s onwards.

Band on the Edge features saxophone, trumpet, harmonica, guitar, keyboard, bass, drums and vocals. It has played for charities, parties, in jazz clubs and other venues.

An evening of quality entertainment is guaranteed.

This concert is for the Pazapa Charity which supports Pazapa School and Clinic in Haiti.
