Bournemouth Carnival Band performing for CLAC 2022

Tonight’s performance in Saxon Square

Horrible weather but a wonderful surprise for the audience when the Bournemouth Carnival Band started playing at full blast ! A lovely mixture of popular tunes and Christmas favourites filled Saxon Square to entertain the appreciative crowd .

Delicious refreshments were supplied and served by Lisa and her team from Route 66 Diner.

Special thanks are owed to everyone in the Carnival Band for their commitment to our Advent Calendar tonight in the face of cold and rain and an outside venue.

Adam McCormack representing the event sponsor Kamm Civil Engineering presented the cheque to Lorraine Nutland from Marie Curie.

Hope to see you tomorrow night in a much warmer venue at the Captain’s Club !!
