Gloucester Brass Band are putting on a summer family performance at Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice to raise funds for the charity which provides specialist hospice care for people living with life limiting conditions in the county

‘Concert at the Court’ takes place on Saturday July 22 from 1pm to 5pm in the beautiful grounds of Leckhampton Court Hospice, Church Road, Leckhampton, Cheltenham with the historic manor house as the backdrop.

It offers a fun day out for all the family with ice cream and refreshments available to buy on the day, bouncy castle and teddy bear’s picnic for children and special interval performance from Angie’s Community Choir from Kingsway in Gloucester.

Tickets cost £5 per adult, £2.50 for children aged five to 16 and under-fives go free. A family ticket for two adults and three children costs £15, with all proceeds going to Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice to help fund the specialist care given by the charity to people living with conditions like cancer, heart failure, lung disease and neurological conditions.

Tickets can be purchased online here or by calling 01242 246285.

Families are encouraged to bring their own blankets, chairs and picnics to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere on the tranquil back lawn of the hospice while Gloucester Brass perform, offering a rare opportunity to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the historic manor house – said to be one of the oldest homes in Cheltenham. The young at heart are invited to bring along a teddy to take part in a teddy bears’ picnic too with a prize for the best dressed bear.

Alysia Cameron Price, Senior Hospice Fundraiser at Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice said, “The hospice is a really special place and we’re really looking forward to opening our doors and welcoming families to enjoy a one off summer concert in our beautiful grounds. With bouncy castle, ice cream and refreshments it will be fun for all the family while helping to raise much needed funds so we can be there for local people and their families at a time they need help most.”

Mandy Phipps plays second coronet in the band and also works in Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice’s kitchen. She said, “Gloucester Brass loves playing at Sue Ryder for such a worthy cause, we play at Christmas in the Chapel and will continue to do so. Please come along with a picnic, blanket and enjoy a summer afternoon of music. There’s nothing more British than a Brass Band, cup of tea out of a flask and a sandwich.”

Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court is home to the only inpatient unit in the county giving hospice care in its specialist 16 bed unit, alongside day services, hospice at home and family support teams. All its services are given free of charge but as a charity it must raise the majority of the £8,000 it costs every day to run through the support of the local community and through fundraising events like this.
