Bilton Silver (Rugby) Band brought the heat to Stretton village fete on Saturday 24th June, with music that entertained the crowds in the June heatwave.
The temperature on the day of the fete reached 28°C, making it one of the hottest days of the year. Despite the heat, the band played a variety of music, including Reach by S Club 7, Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, and a euphonium duet, Double Brass, performed by Neil Kelsall and Samantha Edwards.
The fete was well attended and the band’s performance was one of the highlights of the day. The village fete is held annually and raises funds for the village hall. Monies will be used to fund essential repairs and improvements.
The band is a long-standing supporter of Stretton village fete, and they have been performing at the event for many years. They are always a popular draw, and their performance this year was no exception with the band’s new Musical Director, Brad Turnbull, at the helm.
