Hi Alan, We're currently looking for a couple of cornets at The Egham Band, and you'd be more than welcome to come along. Egham is very close to the M25 and the band hall is very close to Egham station, which has direct trains to Waterloo station. I've been playing with them for nine years, and I now live between Waterloo and London Bridge. I commute out, both for work and band, though in different directions, so I can give you some advice: There are few bands in central London. If you really do end up living in London Bridge rather than somewhere nearby and travelling in, you will find it difficult to keep a car, though it is certainly possible. Accomodation around London Bridge is cheap considering quite how central it is, but only given that consideration. If you don't have a car, then you'll be restricted as to which bands you can get to, but even with a car it would be time-consuming travelling across the centre of town to a band in North London. If you have any questions, feel free to ask here or PM me. Thanks.
