Two Bolton Mayors To Attend Eagley Victoria Hall Summer Concert!

by Deb Lyons

As the Eagley Band Victoria Hall Summer Concert on Saturday July 9th moves ever closer, everyone involved in the concert is proud and honoured that not one, but two Bolton Mayors will be in attendance!

The Mayor of Bolton, Councillor Akhtar Zaman, and the Mayor of Horwich, Councillor Steven Chadwick, will both be VIP guests in the circle balcony at the concert which, as always, will feature the full Eagley Band and Conductor Chris Wormald in every piece throughout the evening and joined together with performances in both halves by the Community Choir and by the Community Band after the interval.

Councillors Zaman and Chadwick are both no strangers to Eagley Band already this month. At the start of June, Councillor Zaman took to the stage with Eagley outside Bolton Town Hall in the town centre square as the band performed for Bolton Council’s Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations on Saturday June 4th with music ranging from Genesis, Elgar and Toto to Birdland, Parry and James Bond as well as performing once again for the Mayor the very next afternoon in Egerton Park, near Walmsley Cenotaph.

That same bank holiday weekend, the full Eagley Band performed all afternoon in Horwich on Friday June 3rd just days after the band was highly honoured to provide all of the music for the inauguration service of Councillor Chadwick as the new Mayor of Horwich at St Mary’s R.C. Church the previous Sunday. Councillor Chadwick has nominated Eagley Band as one of the registered charities for his year in office and the band will be performing at a number of events for his charities throughout the next twelve months.

Tickets for the Eagley Band, Community Choir and Community Band Summer Concert at Bolton’s Victoria Hall taking place at 7.30pm on Saturday July 9th are all priced at just £5 as always and already selling well.
