    Currently looking in particular for a soprano cornet player and percussionists to join a friendly, fun, amateur band. Practices 7.30 to 9.30pm, Mondays at Banbury School, Banbury, Oxfordshire.

    If you enjoy playing but do not want the stresses of a contesting band then come along. Our only contest we tend to take part in is the local Entertainments contest each year and otherwise we do the usual fetes in summer, our annual Spring, Christmas and Autumn concerts and other bits and pieces in between.

    We will of course welcome any players that want to come and have a blow with us whatever brass band instrument you play.

    We have also started a training band recently which meets before the main band rehearsal for those that are just learning.

    If you are interested in either band then please message me.

    Mark, thank you. We are however lucky that a chap from nearby Brackley band, Dave Redhead helps us out when he can. You may well know him as he is on tmp. If we get stuck though I shall definitely see what you are up to.

    Subject to our website man sorting out the updates I have requested our engagement list should be on our website shortly. Please do come along and drop in to see us anyway.

    Who is your mate, anyone we would know? Do they play?
