Wisbech festival ends on right note
People travelled from far and wide to enjoy a concert at St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Wisbech.
The Brinks Festival founded off with the Grand Promenade concert which featured trumpeter John Barker along with the Clarkson Singers. During the concert, which happened on Sunday, May 24, the scroll was returned to mayor David Hodgson ready for next year’s event. The 10-day Brinks Festival proved to be really popular this year. Talks on a range of topics including Agatha Christie, L.S Lowry and Jane Austin were. An evening of Old Time Music, town walks and dramas were some of the attractions to this year’s festival. One of the people behind the event is Peter Clayton, chairman of the Octavia Hill Birthplace House Trust. Mr Clayton said: “This year we put together a very attractive programme. We would particularly like to thank the Tinfish team who were in charge of publicity and marketing.” Trumpeter John Barker is pictured above during the Grand Promenade Concert PICTURE: mfcp15af05520
