A very moist evening for an outdoor concert! Spirits were not dampened however and the crowd were in good voice for Land of Hope & Glory!
They also enjoyed Procession of the Nobles, The Greatest Showman, Craig Lea, March Slaidburn, Water of the Tyne, Feeling Good, Lightwalk, British Seasongs, Jerusalem and the overture to the movie Hook amongst others.

A quartet from the band played at the Christmas lights switch on at Harleston in Norfolk. After the bands set the lights were switched on by Britain’s Got Talent star Ben Langley
The band were listening rather than playing this afternoon. The world famous Cory Band were in Ipswich so it would have been rude not to go and listen. As always Cory were on amazing form.
