Also – another bed has been found for Kennet School!!!  Many thanks to the family who made that offer .

Band letter

Bed needed for Kennet visit!!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I am having to change one of the host families for the Kennet Band visit.  I now urgently need a bed for a Year 10 female student (sax player).  If any UVHS Band player’s family (Year 9, 10 or 11 – doesn’t have to be a sax player) can accommodate her please email me asap  –  I would like to get details out to all host families tomorrow.

Follow The Bands This Weekend

This weekend, both the Big Band and Swing Band are out and about giving everyone a chance to hear some top-quality music from our brilliant students.

Saturday 20th  –  BIG BAND @ The Old Friends (Sautergate) from 20:15 – 22:00 (in the beer garden marquee)

Sunday 21st – SWING BAND @ Grange Bandstand from 14:00 – 16:00

Both events are FREE.  Please publicise them amongst friends & colleagues and on social media – it would be great to have big audiences to play to!
