Band From Down Under includes many retired people who love to play music, travel and meet people.

Ted Kelly, from Adur Concert Band, said: “Several of the band come from earthquake-stricken Christchurch, while others come from the drought-stricken Outback Australia, so they are very excited to be visiting such a beautiful part of England.”

Adur Concert Band members will be joining the group on stage after the inverval.

Adur Concert Band musical director Andrew Burchfield was a student of Band From Down Under musical director Mark Walton at Chichester College.

Paula Streeter, conductor of Petworth Town Band, and Howard Burchfield were also former students.
