Musical harmony has helped Sidmouth Amateur Dramatic Society (SADS) to raise £5,000 for the town band.

The groups worked together on the recent production of Brassed Off at the Manor Pavilion.

SADS has presented a cheque to the band to go towards its search for a new rehearsal space.

Director Joan Heard said: “I felt privileged to direct this play eleven years ago and would never have believed that we could repeat it so spectacularly in 2017.

“With a cast of talented and dedicated actors, the fantastic musicians from Sidmouth Town Band and the highly skilled SADS creative team, the production played to packed audiences all week.
