    Yup we'll be there with bells on!

    Bearing in mind it's less than a mile from our bandroom it'd be a poor show if we weren't really.

    BTW if anyone is after rehearsal facilities Wigston's bandroom is available...:)

    We'll be there again (Friary)
    I think we used your bandroom last year WF - and will be wanting to book it again as soon as we know draw times etc!

    Is anyone taking tubular bells, vibraphone and tam tam? I need to try and borrow some to save on hire fees...

    You're more that welcome to use Wigston's band room - just let Karen, our secretary know when you have an idea of times etc.

    I'm not sure what percussion (if any) is being provided by Leics Association - probably tam-tam and bells, but don't take my word for it!!!

    Hope you didn't find carting your kit up the flight of stairs too onerous....

    We have to do it for every flippin' job....

    The adjudicators are David Hurst and Steve Pritchard-Jones. I know Steve is adjudicating the 1st section but I don't exactly who is adjudicating the other sections. (Yeah I know I'm rubbish, but hey, I'm comfortable with it...;) )
