The Gweek Silver Band Gala Week starts on Friday 25 July with a Clay Pigeon Shoot
at Zelah Farm starting at 6pm.
This is followed by Band Sunday on the 27th with our friends from St Keverne and
Heyl bands as our guests. The bands will march at 6:30pm to the Gala Field where
each will give a short concert, then come together for a massed band to finish.
Finally, on Tuesday 29 July we hold our renowned Pig Roast, together with children’s
sports, tug-o-war and sheaf pitching. The first slice of pork will be auctioned at
around 7pm. Entertainment will be provided by the Helston Concert Band.
