    Does anyone know what entertainment is on at Butlins? I presume last years winners will be on the Friday, any news on Saturday and Sunday?

    I've not come across the Kings Division, are they a military band with woodwind etc or traditional brass band? Either way I am sure they will be excellent. Last year I saw Grimethorpe and they were wonderful, I particularly enjoyed the Procession to the Minster. It really made the hairs on my neck stand on end.

    I believe that we (King's Band) are playing on the Saturday night. Not wanting to give too much away, but it looks like it's gonna be a stonker of a programme.

    I'm really looking forward to it.

    I am coming along as a spectator this year as we live local however I am wondering is there any stalls there? Like Brass retailers, any deals etc. To be fair, it is more my wife who is interested in persuading me to buy her a new Eb tuba :( Bit of a long shot but thought I would ask.

    Many thanks, that's very good to hear. Need to replace a few bits so some stalls with some nice offers would be great for January. Look forward to seeing the many superb bands and enjoy a bit of whatever Butlins has to offer. Thanks for your response.

    The women have to work somewhere, surely even you would understand that, or do you still have loyalties to your mcdonalds career ?

    Well Burger King would be somewhat cheaper than whatever my Mrs may find. As a much more accomplished musician my wife seems to think this means she gets to go shopping for musical stuff. (Her Boosey and Co Imperial Eb Tuba is past its sell by date but been putting off getting another for the last few years.)
