This Gig is in the past, if you were there leave a review below
Since its formation in an Alcester coffee house in 1897, the AVSB has retained close links with the town of Alcester regularly playing at town events, including the Court Leet parade, the Remembrance Concert and the annual Street Market.
The band also performs regularly at bandstands around Warwickshire and Worcestershire.
The band has a strong regular core membership, some newer, keen, young members, and is always on the look out for new recruits with enthusiasm and a brass instrument!
Rehearsals every Monday evening at 7.30
Originally the Abbey Grounds, the park is very close to the main part of the town and provides a fresh green setting for this historic but still vibrant Abbey.
The park has lovely mature trees including a tree carving sculpture and plenty of open grass area. There is a children's play area, a children's water play area and also a skate park.
The bandstand, which officially opened on the 28th November 2010, came about due to Pershore Youth Council who in September 2009 took the idea of a youth shelter to Pershore Town Council and after consideration chose a bandstand as it would serve a dual purpose.
The Town Clerk from Pershore and the Parks Officer from Wychavon District Council worked together on the project. The Youth Council raised some of the money by holding a music festival and other activities, and the Town Clerk successfully sought a variety of other funders, as can be seen from the panel inside the shelter.
Anyone wishing to hold a band concert in the park during the summer should contact the Pershore Town Clerk on 01386 561561.
