Packed hall for the 3rd Listen to the Band night

A packed Lutterell Hall at West Bridgford enjoyed a brass band concert from the Long Eaton Silver Prize Band on Saturday October 14th   raising over £1200 for local good causes.  

Concert project manager James Thornhill said: "It was great to combine raising funds for such worthwhile causes while enjoying an excellent evening of music. The band and its leader Sharon Stansfield put on a really, good show for us. Not just good music but lots of fun as well."

The local good causes that will benefit from the evening are Studio House, a residential drug and addition rehabilitation centre, Dolly Parton Imagination Library, a free book scheme to support early childhood literacy and Emmanuel House who provide a night shelter and support for the homeless and vulnerable.

The Long Eaton Silver Prize Band is a friendly community based brass band organisation, comprising three groups (the senior band, the training band and a beginners' group) totalling in all about 90 players.

There is a strong family element to the band. Sharon Stansfield, the band's musical director first joined the band at the age of 9 sharing a cornet with her brother. Now she is joined by her husband Robert who plays the bass trombone, her son James Dennis who sang and played the cornet.  Grand-daughter Hannah Dennis, who sang a delightful solo, and grandson William Dennis are also in the band.
