Mayor looks forward to the Big Band charity concert

Oadby and Wigston Mayor, Cllr David Carter, is looking forward to one of the biggest events of his mayoral year. He would like to invite all residents and music lovers to join him at Leicester Grammar School on 10 April 2019 for the Big Band concert in aid of his chosen charity, the Alzheimer’s Society.

The programme for this popular concert will be a nostalgic and foot-tapping extravaganza, with a varied selection of music, including Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Stevie Wonder and Hoagy Carmichael.

Cllr Carter said: “Having attended previous concerts at the school, I know that we will be in for a good evening and I am grateful to the school, music department and talented students for their support.

“The Alzheimer’s Society is a charity close to my heart as my father suffered from dementia in the last four years of his life. Throughout this time, the charity was a tremendous support to my family, providing information and advice and, as his condition deteriorated, access to a carer’s support group and respite day care.”

The concert starts at 7:30pm with tickets priced at £10 and under 18's free of charge.

Tickets may be purchased online at or via the School Music Office (payment by cheque or cash – please make cheques payable to ‘Leicester Grammar School’).
