SHIPSTON TOWN BANDS

Shipston-on-Stour

Town Band

Shipston ‘Go Green’ in Worcester

    Yes, for the very first time for years some of Shipston Band were seen wearing hats. They did clash with the rest of their attire, but who cares  . . . everybody were told is ‘going green’ these days.

    Cripplegate  Park was the setting  and in place of a bandstand a ‘pop-up bandstand’ was provided to shelter the band in case of a little heavy weather as other years have proven, but this year as proven by the grin on Mark Allen’s face the cover was not needed, as the band entertained the crowds on a Sunday afternoon with some traditional brass.
