    On Saturday July 12th most of the bands in the Durham Area will be taking part in Durham Miners Gala. It's a fabulous day consisting of marching, boozing ect. The bands all march in to the university sports ground leading all the old colliery banners. This year Murton Colliery Band are short of a few players and wondered if any TMP'ers would be available to help. We need front row cornets, horns and basses. If anyone is available either email michellegarbutt@talk21.com or send me a private message. It's a great day out and very much part of the banding tradition up here.

    Hi Michelle,

    As promised to you at Easingwold I have checked my dates and I am unfortunately unable to help. I wish you lots of luck finding the deps you require.

    I have made this thread a 'sticky' for you so it gets top priority until the weekend.

    Oh dear, you are in a pickle!

    I'm playing with Dunston, but as soon as i've done their march i'll give you ring (Stan gave me his no on Whit Friday), and if you haven't gone down yet, i'll leg it back to the top and do it again with you.

    However, from what i've heard, Dunston traditionally go down quite late on, which may scupper things, but unfortunately that is the most i can offer you.

    Good Luck!!

Liquid refreshments will be provided during the day and we can provide accomodation if required. If anyone can help please ring me on 01429271463 or mobile 07791854976.
