Louth Wind Orchestra at Alford Music and Arts Festival. Sunday 10th July 2022
Thanks to Clive Sutton for the superb photos!
Some of the people we support through residential care in Alford had a wonderful time at Alford Music and Arts Festival. this weekend.

Having a go at steel panning with Rhythm and Steel was a particular highlight. As was getting together with friends from other residential houses to enjoy the Party in the Park. ☺️🎵

On Friday, there was a creative and expressive buzz around the building, as St Helena's celebrated the very first Alford Music and Arts Festival. . There was so much happening around school (and within the community too!), with each class experimenting with a different skill, including textiles, painting, sculpture and observational drawing. The children had an amazing day expressing themselves and have produced some incredible projects.

Year 4 had an extra-special part to play, however, and with Miss Wickland have worked incredibly hard to prepare for it. They began at the start of term learning how to play djembe drums, something that has inspired some of them to take up the instrument at home! They then designed and printed their own t-shirts, all in preparation for their performance that evening, in front of a large audience and alongside several local schools.

We couldn't be prouder of the Year 4 children and their endurance to pull off such a momentous task; it will certainly be an experience they will never forget.

It has been so wonderful to be part of this creative community event; thank you to all involved in the organisation of all parts of the festival. We can't wait for next year! 😊❤🎤🪘🎼❤️🎨
Here's a couple of photos of us playing in the courtyard of the George Hotel in Alford on Sunday as part of the Alford Music and Arts Festival. Thank you Heather for taking them.

Would like to thank Alford Music and Arts Festival. for everything they did to make this an amazing weekend!
We had a fantastic time yesterday playing the Alford Music and Arts Festival., alongside the fantastic The Rye Sisters and the brilliant Abi Moore

Huge thanks to Andrew Skinner and Scorpio Promotions too!
Great weekend of music, thank you Alford Music and Arts festival for including us.
Whilst driving to play at the Alford Music and Arts Festival. today we wanted to play some suitable music to get us in the mood. Clear blue skys and a warm temperature, so it had to be Oh Sun Shine Down. Love this album and we're now about to play it again whilst enjoying the evening Lincolnshire sunshine. I'm feeling another cover coming on - maybe for our the local ukuelele group who love a happy song??? 😀 🌞😎 🎶🎶 with Alan Roberts
Wow, what an unexpected day of nice surprises, not just because playing live at Alford Music and Arts Festival. was ace. (Thank you to Andrew Skinner for asking me, and to everyone to came to watch- tag yourselves in the audience pic if you like!) But also catching up with old friends Pete Wargent & Heather Toulson, making new ones in The Miracle Cure and finally seeing The Rye Sisters in their full glory after missing them at Maverick Festival last week.
