Ampthill is officially twinned with Nissan-lez-Enserune in France situated in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. The Concert Orchestre d’Harmonie Municipal de Nissan visited Ampthill in April 2015 and participated in a joint concert with Ampthill Town Band at Redborne School.
The Band travelled to France at Easter 2016. The band played outside the Town Hall(picture top right) and on the Market Square on the Saturday morning. A joint concert was held with the Concert Orchestre d’Harmonie Municipal de Nissan at the Salle Michel Galabru (picture top left) on the Saturday evening.
In the band’s long history stretching back over nearly 200 years this is the first performances of the band outside the British Isles.
A great time was had by all the visitors from Ampthill and we would like to thank our wonderful hosts.
