Story of Tubby the Tuba brought to life this Christmas

Tubby the Tuba will be making a rare appearance as part of this year's Christmas Concert.

This musical story, of how a lowly Tuba finds his voice and then gets to sing, will be narrated by popular local actor, Mark Woodham.

Mark, who is no stranger to the stage, having recently performed the role of the wizard in The Wizard of Oz at Northampton's Royal and Derngate Theatre, said; "I was delighted to be invited by the band to tell Tubby's tale and help bring the story to life."

Robert Chadwick, a long-time member of the band, who will be playing the role of Tubby, said; “It’s not very often the Tuba gets a chance to step into the limelight and this theme is reflected in Tubby’s story. Of course, the story can only be told with support from the rest of the band who will do an excellent job, as always.”
