Isle of Wight holiday could include concert band show

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays this December could attend a show by a local concert band during their time on the island.

The Cowes Concert Band is set to tour the Isle of Wight in the lead-up to the festive period, performing in various locations throughout November and December 2010.

According to a report on VentnorBlog, All Saints' Church in Gurnard is to host the first show on November 29th, before the tour moves on to Binstead Methodist Church on December 6th.

East Cowes Methodist Church hosts the group on the 13th, with St Mary's Church in Cowes holding the final show a week later.

Admission to locals and those on Isle of Wight holidays is free, although there will be a collection.

The band's musical director Andy Norman said: "For decades the unique sound of a traditional brass band such as ours has become synonymous with carols being played outdoors during Christmas."

John Metcalfe of the Isle of Wight Council recently described a Christmas break on the island as "unique".
