Two October Saturday Night Concerts!

by Deb Lyons

Now that the Summer is well and truly over and our first public Eagley concert of the Autumn is just a few days away on Saturday September 7th (not to mention the first of our organised band meals is taking place in Egerton the following Friday evening), already October is looking to be another busy month for us at Eagley. Not only are we starting to prepare musically for our own major Victoria Hall concerts and for Butlins Contest in January, we have two more exciting concert bookings on October Saturday evenings; a full concert of our own in Trinity Methodist Church on Bury Road at 7.30pm on Saturday October 12th and then just two weeks later, a welcome return to the Victoria Hall at 7.30pm with Smithills Community Choir and Band on Saturday October 26th on behalf of Bolton Lever Rotary in a “Disney And The Greatest Showman” concert. 

Tickets for both evenings are on sale at just £5 and both organisations are confident that the drawing power of Eagley will ensure that they either sell out or get very close (the last brass band concert our MD Chris Wormald conducted at Trinity Methodist Church was completely packed to the point of standing room only around the sides throughout the whole concert) but it is hoped that there will be a few tickets available to buy on the door for both concerts.
As usual, anyone wishing to buy tickets in advance for peace of mind can do so with pleasure directly from Booth’s Music Shop in Churchgate (Tel. 522908), Jeff James Hairdressing opposite Asda Astley Bridge (Tel. 595157) or from our Band President and Trustee Mr Gerry Russell at  without any booking fees whatever. Tickets for October 12th are available from Trinity Methodist Church and for October 26th from the Victoria Hall Box Office (Tel.522569) or on line from the Bolton Methodist Mission website.
