Tenbury Town Band in Pont du Casse 2005

The hospitality of the people in Pont du Casse was absolutely amazing, everything from accommodation and food,  visits to wine cellars, swimming, local towns and concerts had all been prepared for us.  The above picture is taken outside the regional government buildings in Agen, we were lucky enough to visit the council chamber and perform at an evening soiree

 

We performed three concerts while in France the last being in the most excellent theatre in Pont du Casse. This was followed by yet more wonderful food and drink.

2005 France - Pont Du Casse

Another great visit to our Twinned Town in France was arranged for us.  We stayed in cabins in part of an equestrian centre. It was a fantastic base for the band to spend their week as it meant we were able to socialise as a band and the younger members could play football and table tennis in their spare time. This was to be Keith’s final tour, but one he most definitely enjoyed.
