Foden's
  Foden's will start their final series of Christmas Concert appearances in their home town

Foden's Band will be holding their annual Christmas Concert at Sandbach Boys School on Sunday 10th December (7.30pm).

All friends, family and supporters have to do is turn up on the door and pay (free to youngsters under 18 with an adult) to enjoy plenty of brilliant festive music making, including a host of fantastic new arrangements by John Barber of classic Christmas tunes.

Encourage youngsters

Principal cornet Mark Wilkinson told 4BR: "It's always good to perform in Sandbach to a full house and we are well aware of the need to encourage younger audience members.

This is our final concert in Sandbach before rounding off the year appearing at Clonter Opera Congleton on the 16th, Marine Hall Fleetwood on the 17th (both with Matt Ford) and our final concert of the year at Little Lever High School on the 19th December."
