The 18-piece 'Big Band Swing' will be presenting its annual charity performance in Haddenham, supported by Haddenham Lodge, in the village hall on Friday 10th November starting at 7.30pm.

The evening will offer a wonderful selection of music from the golden era of the big band sound through to present day arrangers.

There will be a licensed bar but people should take their own nibbles.

Tickets (£10) must be booked in advance by calling 07977 138044 or visiting the band's website. The event will raise money for local charities.

The band was formed in June 1996 by Kevin Lane & Rob Carter as an offshoot of the then 'Aylesbury Town Band', and villager Lee Buckingham took over as its leader in 2006.

Playing for private functions, open concerts and charity events, it has helped raise over £30,000 to date for local charities and organisations.

The band took on a new initiative in 2016, its 20th anniversary year, and has been holding small concerts on the first Monday of each month at the George and Dragon Hotel in Princes Risborough.

A local charity is invited along to 'shake' a collection tin to help raise monies. This has proved to be a real success already with more than £1,000 being raised to date on what would normally be just a "Monday Night".
