The “Saltaire Bandstand” held its second of six summer events this Sunday 25th June in Roberts Park. Guests were the Creek Alley Western Dancers who displayed their
skills on the promenade in front of Sir Titus Salt statue. He looked a little toffee-nosed on the affair, but in a rare interview has expressed great pleasure in the fact that his promenade is again being used on a Sunday afternoon.
Altogether around 100 people attended, many of them joining in the dancing, refreshing themselves in Half Moon Café and also enjoying the oil-paintings of local artist David Starley, many of which feature Saltaire.
The next event sees Gypsy Rock Band from Bradford on Sunday 7th July at 2.30pm. This very active outfit has, like all our perfomers this summer, kindly offered to do the gig free of charge. The Half Moon Cafe will be open (as it is every Saturday and Sunday throughout the
summer) and an exhibition of airbrush art from Koot will be there for all to see. Come and enjoy.
