2018 has been quite a year for Chichester City Band but perhaps the most significant event, on 30th October, was our return to the City after some 6 years in Bognor Regis. Although we’ve been able to use great venues (thanks to the Regis Centre and to South Bersted Church Hall for providing us with rehearsal space), we’ve been constantly striving to move back to Chichester.
Having heard of our search for a suitable venue, Jon Barnett, General Manager of Goodwood Motor Circuit, very kindly offered his assistance. As a result of the company’s magnificent generosity, we have been very fortunate to move into our new home in the Super Shell, a fantastic historic building (clearly visible from the air and on Google maps!), which has great space, can accommodate all of our groups under one roof, and has an acoustic that is ideally suited to our needs.
(To find out more about joining us, please visit our Playing with the band page.)
Pictured here is our first rehearsal with MD, Rom Stanko. We have plans for a photo shoot on the race track itself, which runs alongside the building, but we’ll have to wait for better light in the spring (and also make sure the track isn’t being used for its intended purpose)!
