B. C. ORCHESTRA
at The Three Tuns
Time – 4pm – 6pm
Bishop’s Castle Orchestra would like to welcome you to, what has become, our regular Arts Festival Concert. We need to warn you, however, that this performance will only be suitable for children and adults and will contain material you will find enjoyable. Children will have the opportunity to help the struggling conductor keep control of our somewhat anarchic orchestra and will be rewarded with a small gift (the children not the orchestra).
