Bratton Silver Band – The Lost Village of Imber
In 2019, with the support of Arts Council England and The Norman Jones Trust Fund, Bratton Silver Band commissioned a piece of music to mark the band’s 160th anniversary. never imagining that it would be another three years before they could perform the piece in full to a live audience!
Westbury Festival are delighted to say that “The Lost Village of Imber”, written by Christopher Bond (composer) will now feature as part of a varied programme of well-known tunes in the concert.
Within the tradition of brass band music, historic stories and events are kept alive through performance and this special performance celebrates both local history with the story of the lost village as well as the historic band itself.
This event has been organised with Holy Trinity Church and all profits will go to support the church.
