Let’s hear a fanfare – because Operation Bandroom is go!
After two years of painstaking planning and fundraising efforts, Royston Town Band is on the cusp of starting to build a new bandroom home at the end of Tannery Drift.
Chairman Charmian Flowerday said: “We can’t believe that it’s actually happening – it seems like a long time ago that we had our ‘last blast’ in our old bandroom behind the Manor House, and even longer since we started to plan our move.
“We’ve had amazing support from the people, organisations and businesses of Royston.
“People have gone out of their way to donate to the project, support our events and help us find a place to rehearse while we have been ‘of no fixed abode’.
You may also want to watch:
“We can’t wait to get under way, and of course to move in later this year – watch this space for progress and for details of our grand opening, you’re all invited!”
