Moreton Lights-Up For Christmas 2014

    Saturday, 29th November, saw the combined bands of Stour Concert Brass and Shipston Town Band kick-off Moreton’s Christmas Lights Event in style, which also proved to be both Bands first major engagement of 2014’s festive season.

    Seasoned players and younger members of both Bands came together to entertain the early-day shoppers at the Special Christmas Market leading up to the all-important ‘switch-on’ later in the day. Below are just a few pictures of the bright sunny November day  as the Bands entertain Moreton folk as the Bands played some suitably light tunes for the occasions.
