Skegness Brass Band Festival

Starts at 11.00am in Tower Gardens and
continues at 1.00pm on Tower Esplanade
All proceeds for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice
Welcome to the Skegness Switched On and Festival of Brass Bands 2011. This is what we hope will be the first of an annual event raising much needed funds for the St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice. The Hospice and its Care
in the Home service is providing a much needed professional and caring service for the whole of Lincolnshire.
We declare at the outset that whilst also raising the public awareness of brass band music in the twenty-first century, the main purpose for organising this event in conjunction with the East Lindsey District Council and the Skegness Town Centre Management in particular, and SECWHA (Skegness East Coast& Wolds Hospitality Association), along with the Partnership is to raise as much capital as possible for the St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice through the generosity of the public at large.
We are indebted to all the bands taking part, not only for their wonderful music, but also their support by immediately giving their services freely to the cause and working with the organisers in the planning of this event.
We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to East Lindsey District Council and Skegness Town Centre Management,
for their assistance in this project. Without them none of this would have been possible. Likewise, the Skegness
Rotary Club, and their members in their many different guises.
Without many people and organisations this Festival could not take place and the Brass Band Festival Committee are most grateful to them, as there are far too many to name individually.
Finally, many thanks to you, the public at large for supporting us in our endeavours
Thank you all, most sincerely.
