Handcross Band concert 1969

In October 1969 the Handcross Band produced a variety show in the Parish Hall and they were accompanied by comedian Peter Bryant, Howard and his Electric Organ, and Freda Ringrose.
The picture above features cornettists, Bert Wells, Bob Marsh, and Peter Gasson, playing a speciality number.
The Large Version shows a poster of the event.
The band put on all sorts of concerts in local venues and they were always well received. A few of the posters promoting events during the 1960s can be seen by clicking on Open Document. I did not know there were so many ways to spell compère!
