Fats Rollini Jazz & Blues Band play in Pinner Memorial Park

Today despite a downpour before the concert started, people turned up to listen to Fats Rollini Jazz and Blues Band.

Unfortunately they were without their singer who got pinged yesterday and had to isolate.

Thank you for ignoring the weather forecast and enjoying the concert.

The highlight of the day was when I was approached by two youngsters who had lost their grandmother. Luckily they were quickly united.

Next week Thye Stardust Big Band will be playing.

Harrow Steel Band Performing at Pinner Memorial Park.

We did it!

Getting ready for the concert!

It was wonderful to have music from Harrow Steel Band wafting across the park after so long.

What was more surprising was that for once the weather gods were quite kind to us. It only started to rain when packing up.

Thank you to Harrow Steel for entertaining everyone. Thank you to all the helpers who gave up their time – it was appreciated.

Next week Fats Rollini Jazz and Blues band will be entertaining us. See you there.

Good news – the band concerts are on!

Harrow Steel Band 25 July @2:30pm Pinner Memorial Park.
**** There will be NO chair hire this year ****
After a few fraught days including contacting Sean Harriss CEO Harrow Council; I have been given verbal confirmation from the Head of Strategy, Development and Performance that the concerts may go ahead this year. I also double checked by asking if it was ok to publicise the events and the answer was” yes”.
I have not been informed of any additional requirements apart from another risk assessment which has been completed and submitted.
If you have been told to self-isolate, please stay home.

Band Concerts In Pinner Memorial Park.

We are hoping to kick off this year’s season on the 25 July with Harrow Steel but we are still waiting for confirmation that we will be given permission from Harrow Council to hold the concerts.  This is despite multiple email’s and phone calls to various people over the past week.

The earliest we will know whether the concerts can go ahead is Wednesday morning (21 July).  If Harrow Council imposes any conditions such as tickets only with which we could not comply at short notice, then we would have no choice but to unfortunately cancel this year’s events.  I hope that you understand.
