All this and the audience also enjoyed Vinter's 'James Cook — Circumnavigator' and Howard Snell's original arrangement of Ravel's 'Daphnis & Chloe'.

The Gala Concert at the famous Corn Exchange venue was provided by Britannia Building Society and Williams Fairey Engineering Bands who gave splendid individual and massed performances.

There are solos from Nicholas Childs and Martin Winter as well as the tastiest lollipops from Henry VIII through to Wagner and Gershwin, ending with an exciting rendition of Sibelius's nostalgic tone poem Finlandia conducted by Major Peter Parkes.
