Indian Queens’ Band Week kicked off last night with a concert at the local Working Mens Club, which featured the main band and also the training band. I had the privilege to launch Band Week and I also crowned the “Band Queen” and the younger “Fairy Queen.”
It was a wonderful evening and Indian Queens is very fortunate to have such a wonderful institution as the Band. Founded in 1856, it is still at the very heart of my local community and we owe a great deal to the bandsmen and their helpers and supporters for what they do, week in and week out.
There is much planned for Band Week, which includes:
Tuesday 23 July – Bingo at Indian Queens Victory Hall (eyes down at 7.30) and a euchre night at the Queen and Railway,
Columb Road (8.00)
Wednesday 24 July – Quiz Evening at the Bandroom (7.30)
Thursday 25 July – Fete and barbeque at the Blue Anchor, Fraddon (6.00)
Saturday 27 July – Grand Carnival (7.00)
Sunday 28 July – Old-time tea dance at the Bandroom (2.00)
Hope to see you there!
