    Hi, I have just moved to Bradford for work after graduating and I am looking for a band.

    Before I moved I was playing 3rd man for Northop Band in Wales.

    I am willing to travel upto an hour, somewhere in the Yorkshire area would be ideal!

    Any suggestions welcome!

    Why not give Marsden a try? They're a similar standard to Northop, about 1/2 hour away from Bradford and I believe they are looking for a bumper up.

    The top seat at Ripon is up for grabs if you fancy trying out. we are about 40 mins from bradford and we made the finals in the 3rd section this year.

    if you fancy a change to a wind band there is space for cornets at the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Band in BRADFORD, we are off to Ypres next week and we are off to poland next year.
