THE KEMPSEY District Silver Band will present a 'Night at the Movies' this weekend - so get your tune on for a musical journey of treats.
The band has had a busy year so far, practicing for the ANZAC Day parades and ceremonies - and once that was dusted the focus switched straight to the scores of some of the biggest movie themes of all time.
Some of the numbers you will hear are from movies like Jurassic Park, Phantom of the Opera, Mary Poppins, Grease, Harry Potter, Aladdin and the show stopping theme from How To Train Your Dragon.
The band will perform two shows:
Saturday, from 6pm at the Frederickton School of Arts
Sunday, from 2pm at the Bandbox Theatre.
Join in the fun and dress up as your favourite movie character as costumes will be admired but are not required.
The show includes prizes for best dressed, a raffle, trivia questions along with tea and coffee and a light supper/afternoon tea that will be provided by the band members.
Tickets: Adults $10, children and concession $5.
Come along and support the Kempsey District Silver Band and have a great night/day out.
