The Spring Gardens Band comes to Morrisons

The Reading Spring Gardens Band serenaded shoppers at Morrisons on Basingstoke Road with Christmas tunes on Sunday 18 December, under their new musical director David Ruel.

The band started life in the nineteenth century when the Spring Gardens Wesleyan Mission Concertina Band received funding from the Spring Gardens Mission, in Katesgrove. The band has moved several times since then and is now based at Crockhamwell Road in Woodley.

The band will be playing at Morrisons again on Christmas eve, from 10am until 6pm.
