    Backworth are currently looking to take on a few more younger players in both our senior and junior bands. Now's the time - school is nearly over and the summer is here.

    The junior band rehearses on Fridays and caters for junior players of all abilities from complete learners to the more established players. The senior band is especially keen to attract one or two younger cornet players who want to learn from playing with our experienced and friendly band. The senior band rehearses on Tuesday nights and Sunday mornings.

    We only 10-15 minutes away from Newcastle, Whitley Bay, North Shields, Blyth, Cramlington and transport can be arranged for suitable players.

    Any enquiries can be made to me via PM or colin@vauxhall-senator.com or 01670 790 412
