WIGHT DIAMONDS TO HOST CONCERT FOR LOCAL BRAIN TUMOUR CHARITY

Islanders are being invited to join the Wight Diamonds Marching Band for a charity concert in aid of a local brain tumour charity later this month.

The concert, which is taking place at Trinity Theatre in Cowes on Saturday 13th October, is bound to be a fun-filled evening of hand clapping and foot tapping.

The theme for the night is ‘Flights of Fancy’. The eclectic mix includes a variety of well-known music covering pop, film and even some well-known traditional march classics for everyone to enjoy.

The bands finale will be finishing in true military style by commemorating the Centenary of the RAF (Royal Air Force), as well as the 100th anniversary since the end of the First World War.

The evening will also feature several soloists through-out the concert repertoire and a performance from talented Drum Corps with a Drum Static ‘Drum Colosseum’.

Wight Diamonds’ charity of choice for 2018 is The Wight Brainy Bunch, a key brain tumour community support charity based here on the Isle of Wight. 50% of funds raised from the concert will be going directly to helping the charity to support residents. All further profits will go to growing the marching band and to cover costs.

The band, which was formed in the year 2000 are a familiar sight across the Island whether this be in carnivals, band stands or one of the many community events held every year.
