THE streets of Stowmarket were filled with the sound of music as part of a national marathon this weekend.

Stowmarket Concert Band’s Training Band played a special concert on Sunday, as scores of others did the same throughout the UK.

The Bandstand Marathon event is organised as part of the Cultural Olympiad – giving everyone a chance to be involved with the 2012 Olympics and inspiring cultural creativity.

Bandstands and public spaces across the country came alive with the sound of music on Sunday – and the Recreation Ground, in Stowmarket was no different as the band entertained crowds for two hours.
