The Royal Air Force College Swing Wing Band will return to Wisbech for their first concert in three years.

The performance will take place on Friday November 24 in the theatre of Thomas Clarkson Academy on Corporation Road.

Jan and Ray Hutchinson, organisers, said: "There will be many new faces in the band, but “old musicians” including Sergeant Duncan Opie, band leader, and vocalist Philippa Fourie, are both making return appearances.

"As ever, the band remains true to its traditions and maintains their own high standards of music that we have come to enjoy here in Wisbech."

Wisbech Standard:

RAF Swing Wing is a 20-piece big band that performs a huge range of repertoire incorporating music from iconic big band leaders since the early 1930s.

From original legends such as Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman, through the Count Basie and Buddy Rich era to the more contemporary sounds of Gordon Goodwin; this wide variety of music displays the talent and versatility of the Band.

Their programme will include very popular numbers covering all swing band years, as well as including later tunes bringing them right up to date.

The concert will give the audience an opportunity to enjoy some of the best live music in the area.

The concert will begin at 7.30pm with doors opening at 6.30pm.

Tickets are £15 each and, as always, all proceeds from the concert will be donated to local RAF charities.
