    Hey there everyone,

    this ones aimed mainly at the bands and bands people near the Harrogate area. My band St.Davids Brass have qualified for the Nationals and are looking for a place to rehearse in the area and i was wondering if any of you lovely people have a band hall or anything that we would be able to use? :p

    Any help from people would be accepted greatfully. :D

    Ooh, you'll be competing against us!

    The Harrogate Band were taking bookings for the use of their excellent band room. Last time I looked there were still one or two slots available but to see for yourself, the details are on the homepage of the band website at

    Good luck with finding somewhere :D

    York RI (about 20 miles from Harrogate) have a nice band room if bands are stuck.

    I don't know whether they will loan it out but I've got a contact number for their (old?) band chairman if anyone wants to drop me a PM.

    Freddy - have you been in touch with Gavin yet? If not get his details from our website.

    Our bandroom is now pretty well booked up although last time we spoke about it there were odd spaces left during the finals weekend.

    However we may be able to offer an alternative space in Harrogate; if you're still looking for rehearsal space it is worth getting in touch.

    Thanks Straightmute i have got in touch with Gavin now and it looks like we have sorted it all out. Thank you everyone for all your advice and help! :D :D

    Good luck to all the bands in the Finals by the way!
