Dronfield Band are touring Belgium on the 20th to 28th August 2011. We leave South Yorkshire at midnight on the 19th August to travel via South Mimms Services (picking up some southern friends) 3am pickup and on to Dover, then to Brussels. We are staying in the 4star Thon Brussels hotel, 15 mins from the Grande Place and during the week we will be playing in Bruges, Leuven, The Atomium, Place d'Agora Brussels, Stella brewery trip, Maastricht and the conclusion will be taking part in the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate, Ypres. We return overnight on Sat 27th back to South Yorkshire on the Sunday 28th. We are a recently promoted 3rd section band with a handfull of Championship section players filling empty seats for the tour. We could do with at least 2 more cornets to complete the full band (front and back row) - a reasonable sight reading standard will be required as we doubt there will be many rehearsals for the tour band before we go. Non-playing guests are more than welcome as we have a large coach with plenty of seats available. I have negoitiated extremely good rates on our hotel and coach cost - if you are interested and would like to spend a week with a friendly band, the occasional drink (well it is Belgium) please pm or call me 0791 701 4506.
