Two local Salvation Army members are set to bring home the bang later this month, when the Salvation Army’s International Staff Band play Bexleyheath.

Derick Kane, euphonium player in the ISB and cornet player Darren Bull, will both feature during the weekend performance on February 27 and 28.

It will be the first performance of the ISB in Bexleyheath in 40 years.

Mr Kane said: “The ISB has a rich heritage in this area, with several local bandsmen having played in it over its 125 year history.

“It is an honour to be returning ‘home’ for this weekend.”

The band will be playing a concert at Christ Church, Broadway in Bexleyheath on the Saturday night, as well as running a music workshop on the Saturday afternoon.

The weekend will conclude with a final concert on Sunday afternoon.

Tickets are £10 (centre seat) and £8 (side). For more details or to book tickets, please call 07970 263152 or email
