Spreading Christmas Cheer

The Malling School band took part in two events this weekend.

On Saturday we played in Martin’s Square, Larkfield, for their Christmas event. Despite the rain it was a very successful first Christmas performance, made better by having a gazebo to play under! This was the first time we have been invited to this event, and it was lovely to be involved.

On Sunday we played in West Malling at their Christmas Lights turning on event. This is the second time we have played here, but this year we were also invited to play on the stage. We started outside the library, then moved to the Post Office before our slot on the stage. It is always an extremely popular event and West Malling was incredibly busy. The band welcomed new members to these events, as well as ex pupils who have left school.

We still have five performances left before Christmas;

  • Eccles Christmas Lights event in Bull Lane, Eccles on Friday 1st December at 5pm.
  • Leybourne Christmas Lights turn on in the Donkey Field.
  • Castle Way on Sunday 3rd December at 4pm.
  • St. Mark’s C of E Primary school in Eccles on Thursday 7th December to play in their assembly alongside some of their own pupils.
  • Leybourne Grange Nativity on Friday 8th December and then our own Christmas concert on Thursday 14th December.
