Special guest stars have now been announced

Always an annual favourite, the fundraising event promises audiences an enjoyable night of popular, traditional and classic music by band members, interspersed with performances from guest singers and musicians.

Vocal soloist Val Howels is among the line-up appearing in Sidmouth’s Manor Pavilion on Saturday (February 11).

An associate of Trinity College London, Val is one of the founding members of Friends of the Band and has done a lot to help raise money.

Vocalists Sally Cregan, Alex Jackson and Charlie Craig, from the award-winning Honiton Community Theatre Company, will also take to the stage, following on from their successful appearance in the town band’s ‘Proms’ concert in Connaught Gardens last summer.
