Conquerors to hold table quiz at Bowls Club

BALLYMENA Young Conquerors Flute Band is holding a fund-raising table quiz this Friday evening, February 19.

The venue is Ballymena Bowling Club and the event will begin at 8.30pm.

A light supper will be served and a raffle will take place with a number of excellent prizes to be won.

It’s just one event in a busy period for the Young Conquerors, who will be participating in this year’s Flue Band Association Own Choice Contest, in the Island Arts Centre, Lisburn, on Saturday, February 27.

The band’s test pieces will be ‘Intermezzo’ (Mascagni) and Verdi’s overture to the Opera ‘I Vespri Siciliani’.

Members will be hoping to retain the Grade 2 championship title gained at the same venue last year.

Preparations are already underway for the band’s Spring Concert, to be held at the Braid Arts Centre on Thursday, April 15, at 7.30pm.

Compere will be Jackie Fullerton and among the band’s guests for the evening will be the Neuschel Brass Ensemble.

Tickets will be available soon, at a cost of 8 each.
