Budding musicians give playing a bash
ASPIRING musicians had a go at playing new instruments during a brass band open day.
Gillingham Imperial Silver Band invited visitors to learn more about the band, enjoy special performances and try out some instruments on Saturday.
Youngsters also took the opportunity to make as much noise as they could on the band's drum kits, timpani and cymbals.
Musical director Paul Williams said: "It was brilliant to see so many youngsters come along to our bandroom and try out a whole variety of brass and percussion instruments.
