Film quiz and music night

Night at the Movies
Night at the Movies

A group of Manea musicians will be hosting an exciting new style of performance, which combines a live music concert with a film quiz.

Shaun Pope - the Musical Director of Manea Silver Band - said ‘Music from the movies always makes for a lively concert, but we will be spicing things up even further by asking quiz questions about each tune!”

The concert is taking place in Manea Village Hall at 7pm on Saturday 21 September, and will also feature talented local vocalist Shannon Buckton.

For the winning quiz team, there will be a delicious Sunday lunch very generously provided by Classics restaurant in Manea.

The band offers free music lessons to learners of all ages. It is hoped that this concert will raise money to go towards music and other teaching resources for the group.

Shaun said: “The event will be fun and informal. It’s fine for people to bring their own refreshments to make it a really sociable event – although we hope to have some cinema snack favourites on sale too!

“As luck would have it, our horn player Robert Weedon is also a budding director, and we’ve had a lot of fun putting together some trailers for the event. We’ve used band members to spoof some iconic movie moments. You can see them on our website – www.maneasilverband.co.uk/movies – or our facebook page.

“Brass band music has a very strong tradition in the area. Manea Silver Band prides itself on taking a refreshing approach to concerts, to get people involved and keep that tradition thriving. We hope this concert will get people talking about us”

Tickets are £5 available by calling Nic on 01354 688434 or emailing: chairman@maneasilverband.co.uk. They will also be available on the door. The maximum quiz team size is six people.
