Bexhill’s Festival of Music draws record audiences

The success of the Bexhill Festival of Music continued last week with record attendances at the many varied events around the town.

The Wacky Band’s free concert on the bandstand at the De La Warr Pavilion (DLWP) last Saturday afternoon entertained the crowds with a vast and varied play list. The Wacky Band is a local wind band with more tan 30 amateur musicians of various ages and abilities who make merry music and play at local festivals, events and fêtes under the guidance of their lively conductor Nikky Holt.

Bexhill Choral Society’s ‘Great Choral Classics II’ at the DLWP on Saturday evening was another success both for the local group and the Bexhill Festival of Music (BFM). Conducted by Kenneth Roberts, the Bexhill Choral Society performed a range of favourite choral works including Verdi’s Anvil Chorus and Chorus of Hebrew Slaves.

Chairman of the BFM, Tony Mansi, said the festival continues to be well supported, with many sold out events, adding: “We have again pulled out all the stops to bring some outstanding performers to the local area and we thank everyone who supports us.”

The BFM continues with a varied range of performances for music lovers of all tastes throughout the next two weeks.
