hits turnout at bandstand marathon concert in Burnham
Wet weather reduced the turnout of visitors at a special concert
in Burnham-On-Sea on Sunday (September 25th).
Clevedon Brass Band, pictured, performed a concert in Burnham-On-Sea's
Manor Gardens as part of a nationwide bandstand marathon. However,
the poor weather led to only a small number of visitors turning
out to watch.
The Bandstand Marathon is being held as part of a 'Cultural Olympiad',
which is designed to give everyone in the UK a chance to be part
of London 2012 and inspire creativity. Burnham-On-Sea is among
an estimated 150 venues across the country taking part this year.
The Burnham concert, which was sponsored by Burnham and Highbridge
Town Council, was organised by Somerset not-for-profit music agency
