Rushmoor Concert Band

July 15, 2018

Passing through Aldershot on Saturday on my way to Farnham I happened upon a brass band playing in the bandstand in Princess Gardens.

The band, Rushmoor Concert Band, far outnumbered the audience, and in the absence of any meaningful publicity, they were probably like me only passing by.

There is a weekly programme of events of bands playing in the bandstand throughout the summer.

Basingstoke Silver Band

Passing through Aldershot on the way to Farnham, a brass band in the bandstand in Princess Gardens, Basingstoke Silver Band.

An elderly gent and a couple of others.

I felt sorry for the brass band, having come all the way from Basingstoke.

Does no one understand publicity?
