    Are there any decent champ/1st section bands in Nottingham, or around Nottingham Uni?

    Just I really want to go to nottingham, but want to see if there's a plethora of bands first!

    Obviously if you ever fancy coming down for a blow you certainly more than welcome to come to Bestwood.

    You can come and play in the uni brass ensemble! We are doing Lord of the Rings, Northern Landscapes and Summon the Dragon this term (it's not a brass band we have trumpets pretending to be cornets and french horns in there too).

    Ben, if you go to Nottingham you have to promise to listen to my uncle on the radio (trent fm) and you could join the neighbours society too (my housemate was the founding member!)

    Good luck with it all!

    T'was my psychic ability that told me you weren't the type of person tor spend time whole gherkin swallowing.....

    I'll shout at myself for being off topic, but it's all local knowledge for young Ben ;)

    Hang about... are we talking about the h'actual Jo and Twiggy?! You do learn something new every day!! Now I'm impressed!

    I live in the Meadows in Notts... but it's ok, we've only been shot at once! Am at Trent Uni... drive under that big crossy over road thingy by Queens Med at Beeston to get to work... must be pretty close!

    And Bestwood have a band?! I didn't know that either... how educational this thread is! I was under the impression that Nottingham was a bit of a black hole for bands... but there's loads of you! Well I never... (no gherkins). :tup :tup

    EDIT: I'm not Ginge!! He came to visit, used my computer, and now he's corrupted it! I can't get meself back!!
