Dear Mark I just wanted to write and thank you for all your help in organising the band and singers for our daughter, Jennifer’s wedding last Saturday. I know she was disappointed that you were not able to do it yourself but the Wantage Big Band and the singers were fantastic. Lots of people have said how much they enjoyed the day and the Band were a huge part of making it such a success. Please would you pass on our grateful thanks for them stepping in and providing us with a wonderful performance.
Wantage Silver Band has been making music in Wantage, Oxfordshire and beyond since 1972.
