Red Hot Ukulele Duo - Saturday 21st September

Red Hot Ukulele are an exciting 1920`s - 1940`s ukulele/vocal duo

'Red’ Lynda Styan with the vivid voice and rocking wooden ukulele and'Hot’ Anthony Mason virtuoso on the ukulele banjo, faster than Formby with lusty larynx and a fine line in bravura banter. The two of them together have been described as ‘dynamite’ by usually unexcitable observers and ‘perfectly wonderful’ by the more eloquent.

It is with a very deep sadness that

The Houghton Weavers must announce
the passing of our much loved lead singer, Tony Berry.

Wigston Brass Band In Concert - Friday 6th December 8.00 pm

he history of The Wigston Band can be traced back to the nineteenth century, when it was originally founded as 'The Wesleyan Mission Band'. In 1902, the band changed its name to 'The Wigston Temperance Band' and again in the 1980s, dropping the word ‘Temperance’, many believe due to the drinking habits of its members!

Since then The Wigston Band Organisation has gone from strength to strength, now including three bands. The Horizon Band is for our very beginners where we provide instruments, quality teaching and encouragement to our younger players who are just starting out. The intermediate band within the organisation is called The Enterprise Band which is for members who have been playing a little longer and for those who enjoy a little more challenge. Both of these bands enjoy performing in the community, especially showing off the progress they have made at charity fundraising events.

Finally, The Wigston Band itself is the senior group within the organisation. Today, the band works hard within the community, performing many concerts and raising money for good causes, as well as teaching youngsters basic musical skills. The senior band enjoys performing and contesting to a high level, especially enjoying a trip to The National Brass Band Championships in 2013.  Currently having a playing strength of around 30 players with ages ranging from thirteen to ‘seventy something’, the band enjoys a mixture of fun, hard work and friendship whilst making wonderful music. All members really enjoy playing within such a family orientated environment as well as going out in public to play a wide range of musical genres, anything from jazz to classical, pop to Christmas carols! We hope you enjoy listening to our efforts here!

Saturday 18th July             7 .00 pm  -                           BBQ & Barn Dance

Saturday 19th September 7.30 pm  -                             The Opera Dudes  Present " A Life Of Organised Croon" !

Take a bricklayer, a pub and club singer, a highly-experienced operatic tenor, an organ scholar, a cassock-clad chorister, a Cambridge Graduate, an impressionist, a couple of comedians, and a prize-winning conductor with appearances on the TV, mix them together and what do you get? Just a couple of seriously talented guys giving you a great night out. In other words, the Opera Dudes.

 

Two modern day Mario Lanzas performing some of the world's most romantic music, in their own unique vocal arrangements. The Opera Dudes comprise a posh former Cambridge scholar and an ex-builder turned international operatic tenor.

Between them, Neil and Tim have performed over 50 operas as well as more than 3000 concert performances in most of the major theatres and concerts halls around Great Britain.  Each of them is an accomplished and established performer in their own fields. Their different experiences and backgrounds form an integral part of the act.

Neil’s extraordinary journey as a performer from his early days in Scarrington Minors' Welfare and The Cocked Hat in Broxtowe to St. James’s Palace, The President’s Palace in Malta, Villa Carlotta in Lake Como and theatres in Manhattan will be revealed as part of the show in all its humorous glory.

With his credentials, on the other hand, Tim could never have dreamed that he could team up with a former bricklayer. However, years of study at such illustrious institutions as St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trinity College, Cambridge, The National Opera Studio and subsequent professional experience at Covent Garden, Scottish Opera and Glyndebourne finally enabled him to achieve this dream.
