27/09/2009 - Sunday Fun Day

On 27th September the Castletown Metropolitan Silver Band participated in the Sunday Fun Day event organised by the Southern Multi-Agency Team (Police, DHSS, Health etc) and held at Ronaldsway Aircraft Social Club Grounds.

The event was designed to introduce the children of the south of the island to the various clubs and organisations which are available to them. The band was fully involved, and had a small team of players available with a selection of instruments for the children to try. The band were introduced to many children interested in learning to play brass instruments, two have already attended a band practice and a few more may be shortly. We were also introduced to some adults interested in rekindling their interest in playing and were bowled over by the huge receptive response we received. Click here for photos.

The event proved to be most worthwhile and will be repeated with the concept likely to be rolled out to local schools.

In the meantime we are still looking for junior players and for adults to join the band. Instruments are available and instruction can be supplied.
