The Theatre Royal was packed. There were Disney characters dispensing sweets in the foyer and there was a happy family feeling for the Barrack Street Band Disney Concert.

Oliver Carroll was the MC and Mark Fitzgerald, the musical director, got the evening off to a fanfare start with a medley – a Disney Celebration.

There was Avril Kelly on flute, a march of drums, crowd-pleasing passages of brass, heart-warming woodwinds, flutes to flutter your heart and a zipideedoodah, my oh my it’s a wonderful day.
