The band, with more than 30 members, will be playing under musical director Andrew Burchfield and getting the audience in the festive mood with some of Christmas favourites and carols.

Tickets are £8 on the door. They can also be purchased in advance at the Ackerman music shops in Hove and Brighton. There will be a licensed bar and a quick raffle.​

The Adur Concert Band rehearses in Southwick and plays concerts all year round in the south east.

The community band grew out of the Adur Youth Concert Band in 1991 and in 2001 changed its name to properly reflect the type of band it had become.

The members come from Shoreham, Hove, Brighton, Worthing, Steyning, Crawley and Chichester.

The band welcomes anyone aged 18 and over who can play a wind instrument or percussion. Members include players from around grade five to semi-professional musicians.
