“It was the best ten pound I ever spent!” – Ten Pound Pom David Bailey

The famed Grimethorpe Colliery Band was once home for Andrew Snell. Now he brings his own band – the A-Grade State Champion Darebin City Brass – Preston Band to Port Fairy to share some of the most evocative and stirring music of the English Band tradition. For a bargain £10 ($17 at the current exchange rate, Brexit disasters not withstanding), you will be lead through a history of the great English Band tradition, in homage to all those English migrants who came to these shores under the Assisted Migration Scheme of last century. In the ample spaciousness of the Southcombe Park Stadium, the magnificently full sound of a top notch Band in full flight will take you all the way back to that green and pleasant land
