Summer Concert by the Walsall Symphony Orchestra

Concert by the Walsall Symphony Orchestra


A first class concert by the ever popular Walsall Symphony Orchestra.  A varied programme of popular music was enjoyed by a full-house in the Heritage centre at Chasewater Railway.

As well as the music, the audience enjoyed two train rides to Chasetown, Church Street – Barclay engine No.1964 of 1929 was the loco for tonight.The Burntwood Rugby Club also had a busy evening – this is their tented village!Some railway staff had been working!!


Saturday 27th June

The Anniversary Proms Concert, given by the Walsall Symphony Orchestra, was well attended, with extra seating brought into the Heritage Centre right up until the Concert started.


There were train rides before the concert, during the interval and at the end, steam hauled by Barclay engine 1964/1929 now in NCB West Midlands livery.


The engine which was perhaps going to be used on Saturday evening and Sunday, Wimblebury, was sadly left in the Heritage Centre with water problems.  Shame, but these things happen.
