On a hot afternoon the band played a concert in the Stag Theatre, Sevenoaks with the Portsmouth Military Wives Choir which was conducted on this occasion by Pete Woofenden, a serving member of the Royal Marines Band Service. Deputising for principal trumpet Jon Yates that day was Mark Upton from HMS Collingwood band and what an extremely fine deputy he made too with various solos, for example on the piccolo trumpet for Penny Lane in the Beatles selection, and as lead trumpet in Leroy Anderson's famous trumpet trio Buglers Holiday. A great concert but one where the audience turnout was disappointingly somewhat short of our usual full house: must have been the hot weather!
