    Are there any 1st or 2nd section bands within walking/easy public transport distance from Nottingham university? Trying to look for a band after moving down from Manchester in September. I played front row cornet in a 2nd section band for a year and a half before moving.

    Hi, Blidworth are a second section band near to Nottingham. I live in the City and have no problems getting to band. I've not been with them long but they're a great bunch with a fantastic MD and some decent concerts/contests to look forward to. PM me if you fancy comong along!

    Kieren :)

    Hi Jack,

    As Rich has said Carlton Brass are not far from you and we can always fit in another cornet player. Are you in Beeston? I live close to the university and so a lift in is always possible.

    We practice Mondays and Thursdays now and so those Friday sessions are still possible ;)

    Hi Jack... (its Hannah from Uni Brass)

    I played with Carlton in my first year (hi Dave.. lol) and can thoroughly recommend it! I know there have been a few changes since I was there but it was really good and a great bunch of people.
