The now well established Prescot Festival runs from 21st June until 30th June this year and Maghull’s very own Wind Orchestra has been invited to perform in the finale with soprano soloist Danielle Louise.
I hear that the orchestra went down very well at Lydiate Festival recently so if you want to hear them you know where to go – a quick trip down the M57 to Prescot on Sunday 30th June.
Maghull Town Councillor Jen Robertson was playing with Maghull Wind Orchestra in a ‘Last Night at the Proms’ type finale for this 9 day festival on Sunday 29th June so I went along to hear them at Prescot Parish Church. The festival is now in its 10th year and its web site is at:-
The steeple of Prescot Parish Church as the sun was going down. I just managed to keep the scaffolding out of the shot.
The Church is undergoing significant restoration following a deathwatch beetle attack on its wooden beams so there was scaffolding everywhere inside and out. However, it did not dim the event at all and the audience seemed to be having a great time waving their Union and English flags.
Here are a couple more photos I took whilst we were there:-
