Visit by Musikkapelle

A 34 member strong brass band from Dertingen near Wertheim performed at the Huntingdon Riverside Gala on Saturday 5th June. Mayor Stein and his wife from Wertheim accompanied the group as Wertheim’s official representatives and Klaus von Lindern from Wertheim supported the group during their journey and stay.

Most of the members were hosted privately due to Ann Beevor’s efforts and once again new friendships and connections were formed across borders.

Weather fit for royals, the band’s wonderful performances, everyone’s fantastic energy, support and good mood made also this event highly successful and memorable.

Before coming to Huntingdon, the band had visited Cambridge and enjoyed an unforgettable punting trip on the Cam.

Also the Ceilidh on Sunday delighted all ages – especially because most Germans had never experienced so much fun during a dance before.The band left Sunday morning after lots of hugs, kisses, endless photo shootings and promises of coming again or visiting each other very soon again. The group left at 10am to spend a whole day in London guided by a Blue Badge Guide returning to Wertheim at about 10am
