Mayor's Press Releases

Music brass 

The Deputy Mayor of Hailsham will be among those to attend the Hailsham branch of the Royal Air Force Association’s spring concert at the Hailsham Civic Community Hall on Sunday 20th May at 3pm.

Wealden Brass will be getting the new season off to a flying start with a concert being held to celebrate the centenary of the formation of the Royal Air Force.

Featuring Wealden Brass Senior and Junior sections as well as the Hailsham Community College (HCC) Ensemble and Orchestra, the music will have a distinctly aeronautical flavour. Featuring ‘Those Magnificent Men’, ‘633 Squadron’, and ‘The Dam Busters’ as well as more modern pieces and some popular wartime classics, there is sure to be something to cater for every taste.

All funds raised from the concert will go towards the RAFA Wings Appeal, a fundraising project set up to provide welfare support for veterans from those involved in World War II through to today’s serving RAF personnel and their families.

“The Royal Air Force Association has offered a programme that is filled with all the old favourites as well as more contemporary pieces of music,” said Deputy Town Mayor Councillor Amanda O’Rawe, who is delighted to be attending the concert.

“The Wings Appeal serves to help people remember those who gave their lives selflessly to protect Britain and preserve the way of life we enjoy. I hope that our veterans and residents will take the time to go along to the concert, which will help raise vital funds for such a good cause.

Entry will be by programme priced at £7 (children under 16 – £4) and will include complimentary refreshments during the interval.

Tickets are available from Chapter 12 Wine Bar in Hailsham High Street or at the door.
