Andover Light Orchestra has around 40 members of all ages based in and around the Andover area. Its members’ expertise ranges from musicians just beginning their musical journey, to proficient instrumentalists.

Middle Wallop and Andover Military Wives Choir was formed in 2012 as part of the rollout of a network of choirs, begun by a group of wives and girlfriends in Catterick Garrison who wanted to give each other support and a focus whilst their partners were deployed in Afghanistan.

The choir is made up of veterans, serving service personnel, partners and daughters, and membership is constantly evolving as ladies come and go with military postings, sometimes returning two or three times in their careers.

Test Valley Brass is a community of bands based in Andover, dedicated to the enjoyment of making music, the promotion of learning of brass instruments, and serving the local community.

It encourages new and experienced players of all ages to share the joy and satisfaction experienced when playing music in an ensemble.

Tickets to the event are available on the door at £10 each, with under 12s welcome to attend for free. More information can be found online at testvalleybrass.co.uk.
