    Hello everyone,

    I've just recently moved to England (Bury St Edmunds) for work from Northern Ireland.

    Back home I played a Euphonium in a silver band and would like to get back into playing. I have not played regularly in about 3 years, but am practicing now and still do a few parades/events with few bands back home when I can.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a band around the Bury area where I could go and have a blow? I'm not interested in competing (the last time I did was NI Grade 4), more to ease back into playing and enjoying silver bands again.

    Off the top of my head, Newmarket might be your nearest band. Best of luck mate and welcome to The Mouthpiece :hi

    Welcome to the Mouthpiece.

    Your other bets from Bury may well be Castleton Brass who are about 30 minutes drive away near Diss or Stowmarket Concert Band (actually a Brass Band) about 20 minutes down the A14 towards Ipswich. Both have websites if you google them. Other than that I'm afraid that you will be talking competing bands.

    Hope that this has helped and all the best with finding someone.
