Radstock Festival Fun

Principal cornet, Kit, did us proud by facilitating the unveiling of the Miner’s Silhouette’s by Michael Eavis with a fanfare flourish. Then he ran like the wind to join the rest of the band at St Nicholas Church field to open the Radstock Festival 2023.

The Natural Theatre Company put on a spectacular show of surreal sights and wonders so it was only fitting that we should open the festival with a light hearted programme kicked off with Those Magnificent Men (in their flying machines), followed by our very own Musical Director, Gareth Key’s arrangement of Mr Blue Sky and then moving on to such pieces as Floral Dance and Ground Force (especially for the Flower Pot Head ladies) and as a finale the classic singalong favourite Sweet Caroline.

But the fun didn’t end there, oh no. Kit and Trevor (solo horn) made a reappearance later as part of the Natural Theatre Company’s performance entitled “The Visionary”. We’re still waiting for that call from Steven Spielberg…..
