Members of Honiton Band are looking forward to an exchange trip with a band from across the North Sea.

Thanks to one of the band’s euphonium players, Jan Feersma Hoekstra, who runs a business in East Devon and the Netherlands, the group has an exchange visit at the end of May from the band he plays with, the De Woudklank Fanfare Band, from Noordwolde in Friesland.

While they are spending some time exploring East Devon’s countryside and coast, the members will be socialising with them and playing with them during a concert at the Beehive, on Saturday, May 31.

The De Woudklank Band (established in 1926) started as a village band and, under a talented and euthusiastic musical director Ellis Nijdam, the band has now grown in numbers and improved its playing to competitive level.

As well as playing traditional brass instruments including two flugel horns, the band also has soprano, alto and bass saxophone, french horn, trumpet and glockenspiel, as well as three percussionists.

Honiton Band will be accompanying them for four pieces.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear them in action - tickets are £6.50 and children under 12 years go free.

Honiton Band hopes to go to Noordwolde in a year’s time for a similar experience.
