WITH the March sunshine and April showers, spring has well and truly sprung, making it time for Okehampton Excelsior Silver Band to hold their spring concert on Thursday May 3.

The concert starts in the Charter Hall from 7.30pm. Both the senior band and training band will be performing an array of pieces.

Admission is £4 in advance or £5 on the door, with entrance free for under 16s. Tickets are available from Donald's Menswear, the Victorian Pantry, Martin's and directly from band members. All proceeds will be donated to Help for Heroes. The band has expressed thanks to Snowdon's Budgens, of Okehampton, for kindly sponsoring the event.
