I'm looking into the feasibility of running a long brass band weekend here on the Isle of Arran around Easter next year. As the thread's title implies, it would be a brass band 'event' more than a dedicated course, (though there'll be tuition/rehearsals), the idea being to have a blow, have a few beers and find time to enjoy some of the beauty of this isle and basically, have fun! The recently revamped Kilmory Hall and Bunkhouse on the south of the isle would provide the idea setting for the course, with a concert there at the end, or possibly in Whiting Bay hall which is perhaps better suited to band concerts. The bunkhouse accommodates 22 @ £15 GPB per night with the nearby Lagg Hotel able to take more (or some lucky souls can squeeze in our house!). Nothing has been booked or planned yet. I'm just seeing if there'd be enough interest to get a reasonably balanced band together and have a good old brass band weekend. It'd probably run from the Thursday to Easter Monday, but if this is going to be a goer, those with cars will need to book on the ferry in PLENTY of time, believe me! Please PM me if you're interested, and if you are, please could you register your interest a.s.a.p. Many thanks.
