    2023 - our year!

    Barnet Band had a full and enjoyable programme of performances in 2023. 

    After playing at Barnet's Holocaust memorial day in January, as we have for a number of years now, we entertained a large audience with well-known music "from the Stage" in May. 

    In June, we returned to another of our favourite venues, the RAF museum in Hendon, and in July performed on the prestigious Regents Park bandstand. 

    Hampstead Garden Suburb invited us once again to play at their summer fair, and in September we returned to Finchley Garden Nurseries to entertain people by the cafe on a nice sunny day.

    You can see more about these in the Past Performances section of the website.

    Christmas charity
    Barnet Band enjoyed a busy December this year. We started off at Barnet's Christmas Fayre accompanying the hearty carol singing at St John the Baptist church at the end of a festive day.

    A week later, we performed our family concert of well-loved music from the classics, films and theatre, plus of course Christmas hits, at St John's Friern Barnet, where we and some lovely volunteers were able to raise £351 for the charity Homeless Action in Barnet (HAB). If only the England-France football match had not been on that night, we would have raised a lot more!

    And finally we played at the carol service at St Mark's church in New Barnet.

    We are now looking forward to our 2023 season.
