Annual Carol Concert, St. John's Church, Walsall Wood, Sunday 10th December 2017

To Be Conducted by Dave Maplestone.........


So here we were again - the annual Carol Concert at the Band's favourite Church - St. John's in Walsall Wood - it is for many, the best start to Christmas ever and is always a fantastic night to perform in front of so many friends.

However 2017 was an exception.


After 41 years of continuous performances, this was the first to be cancelled.

The predicted snow had appeared over the Midlands and whilst the main roads were passable, the side roads and especially the car park of St John's were a bit 'iffy' to say the least................. and despite giving the weather time to improve, the decision was made at about 11.30am to postpone the Concert into the New Year.

Chairman Shaun Elliott said, 'I can't believe that our favourite Christmas Concert was postponed after an unbroken (at least) sequence of 41 years - Christmas simply won't be the same. Let's hope the postponed Concert in 2018 has a bit more luck!!'
