    My geography isn't too good, but I think you might be quite near Wem Jubilee. I believe Ludlow may have had a band at some point, but I don't know if they still have. If you don't mind a bit of a drive, Knighton Town Silver is a very friendly and busy band. They go for a booze-up, er sorry, I meant 'band tour' every so often. They've just came back from a very successful trip to Belgium which I would have gone on had it not been for the arrival of the little person you see to your left!

    Best of luck finding a band to join and I hope your relocation has gone smoothly.

    ps. Just realised you're new to the forum. WELCOME!

    Hi Katharine,

    As Duncan has already stated Wem Band are about an hour from Ludlow. If you would like to come along for a blow you'd be more than welcome. Incidentally, what position do you normally play? We rehearse on Friday evenings between 7.30 and 9.30 pm. We are a happy and very friendly band and most of the members are registered on tMP! If you would like any more information please feel free to contact me via Private Message.

    Hi, Which band did you play with in the North East? I've just moved from the North East to the Midlands and I would recommend Wem - They are a lovely band to play for.

    As Roger and those before have said you'd be more than welcome at Wem. ive only been with the band for about 3 years, but i can safely say its the friendliest band i have ever played for, and i have really started to enjoy playing again!

    Jackfield Band is not too far from you!
    They are Shropshire's only Championship section band. A really friendly lot who love the social side as much as the musical side of it all. I believe there is a 1st horn seat there at the moment. They will be very welcoming and look after you well. Please PM for more details. Come down and meet the gang!
    Look forward to hearing from you soon.
