AN ELASTIC Band surprised shoppers in Market Place recently – but it was not of the twanging variety.

Instead they were treated to a musical interlude from the Purcell School of Music’s Elastic Band playing an ensemble of music from music from musicals to carnival. Passers-by stopped to listen to the music played by an ensemble of teenagers.

The event was organised by social landlord, North Hertfordshire Homes. Nicola Pearson, neighbourhood development officer said: “The Elastic Band is always popular so we invited them to help us celebrate our 10th birthday of providing affordable homes for local people.”
