    Both my wife and I are going to Bromsgrove Brass Band camp (early August). Anybody else going? Anybody else already gone that can tell us what it will be like?

    If it's held where I think it'll be, then the campus is really pleasant with pretty good facilities.
    Food is pretty poor on site, though.
    Seem to remember someone leaving a distinctive message for the chef, written in spaghetti and sent back.
    Short walk into town, bars and quality food emporiums (emporii?) on the way.

    emporia (?)

    Nice place - interesting people. Dodgy food sometimes (although if you live on salad you'll do ok)

    I'm going :D :D :D :D :D for the 6th time

    I think the food is OK
    Reminds me of school dinners when I was at primary school :wink:
    but much more choice.

    I usually manage to put on at least 1/2 stone in a week there :( but maybe the beer has somethin to do with it

    I don't think they have sent of list of pieces yet but should be soon I hope

    What exactly is a pub quiz team? Is there a quiz night at one of the local pubs in Bromsgrove? or is it some sort of drinking game?

    Tis a real quiz, that happens to be held in a pub! Nothing as sinister as the other suggestion. I'm a modly mod, can't condone that sort of stuff...

    Oh btw, I'll be there...

    Sounds like fun. I'll join your pub quiz team then. :bounce

    I hope there aren't too many British TV/radio/news type questions or I will be really bad.

    I just realized that there are several band camps this summer at Bromsgrove.

    National Children's BB of GB Summer Course: July 28-31st
    NYBB of GB Summer Course: July 31st - Aug 7th
    BB Summer School: Aug 8 - 14th

    So be careful if you are looking for somebody in particular that said they are going as they may be attending a different camp.

    (I will be at the last :) )
