Want To Get A Head? . . . Get A Turkey

    Or for that matter your own personal antler set. An old expression years ago said: ‘If You Want To Get Ahead  . . .  Get A Hat’ well some of the members took things a whole lot further for 2014.

    Father and daughter, Chris and Bethan, came suitably tired, daddy sported a new pair of antlers and daughter Bethan a Turkey! Oh and it didn’t end there, at some time during the proceedings, they shared a hat that  once activated proved non too easy to silence - there’s only just so much electronic Jingle Bells you can take in one day. Below is a selection of pictures from a day that turned out to be a fun day all round for members of Stour Concert and Shipston Town Band.
