FLAGS were waved as Devizes Town Band and special guests entertained visitors on Sunday at Proms In The Park.

Hillworth Park was full of cheerful people as they enjoyed the fun atmosphere as music from many genres filled the air.

The band got the afternoon off to a rousing start with Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty which was quickly followed by the theme music from The Godfather film from 1972.

Next was Ennio Morricone's 1968 blockbuster spaghetti western The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.

It features an excellent trumpet solo from Il Triello by Richard Tannassee.

After a break flautist Madeleine Longbotham and pianist Gabriel Longbotham played and were followed by classical guitarist Andrew Hurst. Classically trained singer Chloe Jordan

performed a selection of songs from the shows, accompanied by Susan Braunton on keyboard.

Later the town band returned with music from more films, pop stars including Amy Winehouse, before the afternoon ended with Rule Britannia, Jerusalem Land Of Hope And Glory.

Devizes town council direct services manager Sarah Williams said: "The Devizes Town Band finished their Proms in the Park season on Sunday at Hillworth Park in spectacular fashion. Their varied programme included music from film blockbusters alongside the more traditional songs we have come to expect from Proms events, including Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory. The event was broadcast live and compered by Fantasy Radio."

Kelvin Nash from the band said: "Led enthusiastically by our amazing and inspirational musical director Sharon Lindo, the players really love these events and put their heart and soul into everything.

"I’m sure it’s a pleasure for the 100s of people in the park, and those listening on Fantasy Radio, but it’s a true delight for those of us lucky enough to be able to perform in the brilliant Devizes Town Band."

The band will also be involved in a show in St John’s Church on Remembrance Sunday, called For King and Country.
