Holy Bandstand

by 3arn0wl

The Proms in the Park went off with a larger than anticipated bang last night.

Members of The Sealed Knot had been engaged to set off their cannons during the performance of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.

Unfortunately however, in what can only have been an oversight, live cannon balls were used, which tore through the bandstand roof and exploded in the gardens some 35 meters away, creating large craters in the flower beds.

“That roof looks more like a bloomin’ colander now – it’s completely ruined,” said on-the-scene fireman,  Walter Sprayer. “Our band won’t be able to perform here for some time.”

Thankfully there were no fatalities during the performance, but apparently Noah Wan was slightly injured.

The Sealed Knot have subsequently pledged to make reparation before next weekend’s concert.
