I've been putting a fair bit of effort recently into populating the map of brass bands on Tim Sawyer's site at http://brassbandresults.co.uk/map/. I consider that I've got some regions near complete now (or at least as close as one can get through internet searching) - but I'm sure local knowledge can turn up some errors on my part and also bands that don't have an internet presence. I'll list in this thread areas that I think are near complete in the hope that people with better local knowledge will check and offer feedback. Within the British Isles: Scotland Wales Northern Ireland Republic of Ireland Isle of Man North of England region - Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham, North Yorkshire, East Riding of Yorkshire, plus the remaining bits of Humberside Lincolnshire Oxfordshire Isle of Wight Elsewhere: Norway Sweden Denmark Finland Faroe Islands Lithuania Italy South Africa Philippines Uganda Even better than checking any of these that you may happen to know locally would be for you to get involved and fill in other areas yourself. Reasonably complete lists of bands along with links to their websites, sorted by geographical area, can be found at: http://www.ibew.org.uk/link01g.htm (UK county by county) http://www.ibew.org.uk/link02.htm (world countries, A-M) and http://www.ibew.org.uk/link02a.htm (world countries, N-Z) You can often get an exact geographical location from a band's website, or if not the precise position and/or postcode of their rehearsal venue, then at least the town that they rehearse in. Google maps will then allow you to extract the latitude and longitude of that position, and - hey presto! It's really easy.
