Saumur 2016

Festival of Masks and Giants SAUMUR

(Warwick’s Twnn Town in France)

As most of you  can remember the band paid a visit to the above Saumur festival in June 2014. I have just received another invite from the festival organisers asking if the Warwick Community Band would be available to attend the 2016 event. I am sorry for the short notice, the 2014 visit was a great success, and I hope we can repeat this in 2016.


The dates will be:

Fri 24th / Sat 25th / Sun 26th– June

(Leave after work Fri 24th 5/6pm—to 11pm return Sun 26th)

Leave Fri 24th –Warwick-Portsmouth-overnight ferry to Caen-Sat Caen to Saumur am-sightseeing Saumur pm- Concert pm-Sun Breakfast and make our way to Caen-Portsmouth Warwick 11pm.

Hotel and meals free.

The cost of the trip will be no more than £100 each, and that is before we look for Grants and sponsorship to subsidise the event.

The event will be open for all members to attend, and of course is only viable if we have a working band. Can you please indicate by E Mail your interest? : 01926 492327

I will hope to inform the membership at our next practice Sat 9th Jan 2016 the trip viability.
